If you’re like me, falling asleep never happens easily. It usually requires a thoroughly planned routine. If you’re like me, one of these rituals might include imagining how historic thinkers, artists, or even presidents, would have fared in today’s world. For instance, imagine Abe Lincoln saying his Gettysburg address while thousands of moms and dads photograph him with their bedazzled iPhones. Or imagine Albert Einstein having to call a Uber while visiting New York City and cursing how expensive it is.
Now imagine Andy Warhol — the most famous artist in the second half of the 20th century — playing with Photoshop. Well, if that’s what you want to see, then I got a video for you. It’s, in a word, surreal. And I had the creeping sensation that it was fake, but it’s not. You should watch it in its entirety. It’s well worth your time seeing one of the greatest visual artists ever make the same kind of junk we all used to make with MS Paint.
