Hanksy Parodies “Peeing Dog” on Mulberry Street

Posted on: December 8th, 2011 at 6:28 am by

Just when we thought Hanksy might have forsaken the streets of the Lower East Side, the brilliant wheat-paster is back in action. In fact, we’ve been eagerly awaiting a followup to the “Laugh Now…,” which we first spotted along Freeman Alley and later, outside the Darkroom on Ludlow. For the next installment in the Tom Hanks-Banksy mashup, the artist channels an early 1990s baseball classic – A League of Their Own.

Coach Jimmy Dugan of the Rockford Peaches is a dog, that much is clear. His ball-capped head was superimposed onto Banksy’s “Peeing Dog,” complete with epic neon pee stream. There’s no crying over this comical street art parody, which was spotted by Boogie reader KK on Mulberry Street just north of Kenmare.

Perhaps this was partial inspiration…

Hanksy, if you’re reading this, give us a shout!
