Late last week, British artist Banksy officially opened his latest art installation named Dismaland. The Disneyland spin off features a plethora of familiar pop icons as well as some deformed Disney characters. Socialite Paris Hilton even makes her presence felt in the form of a trademark Banksy stencil type graffiti alongside her lovable chihuahua Tinkerbell.

Recently Banksy released a video commercial for his art installation. In this video, a bored family is portrayed in dire need of a vacation or a getaway. They then visit the theme park only to find demented looking characters and twisted rides all bundled up in this amusement or rather, Bemusement, park.

Thousands of people flocked to this bemusement park over the weekend to see firsthand detailed looks at the various art installations, and of course also the art by other artists that were selected by Banksy to be included.

Here’s the video commercial along with some photos of some of the features of Dismaland.
