Banksy Shares Official Trailer for ‘Dismaland’

Banksy's pop up bemusement park 'Dismaland' opened in Weston-super-Mare (UK) last week, and first reports say it really is a viable alternative to the "sugar-coated tedium of the average family day out". The dystopian paradise now has an equally dismal promotional video, in which a family decide to escape from mindless escapism by paying the park a visit. Click the link to see the official trailer.

Anonymous street artist Banksy has shared an official trailer advert for his recently opened “Dismaland Bemusement Park”. The two-minute clip was uploaded to Banksy‘s seldom used YouTube account and features a family of four excitedly taking a trip to the Weston-super-Mare exhibition described as “the happiest place on earth.” The family don’t seem to have too much fun at the park in the advert and it all ends pretty darkly…

In the case of ‘if you didn’t know, now you know’, I’m currently traveling around Europe and saw the concept of Banksy’s “Dismaland” in my Instagram feed.

With London being my last stop, I’m really hoping to fit “Dismaland” in my itinerary but I don’t know how I’ll convince the family to come with.. Any suggestions on how to convince them to come along with me to the (un)”happiest place on Earth”? 😛

Dismaland is on until September 27. Head to for more information and tickets.
