‘Trashy’ Honey Boo Boo Portrait Isn’t Insulting, It’s Beautimus! (VIDEO)
Oh my door nuts! A mosaic artist named Jason Mecier just created the perfect work of art: A portrait of Honey Boo Boo made out of junk. Could there BE a more fitting medium for all things Honey Boo Boo? Some may call her trashy, but we know a treasure when we see her.
Needless to say the Honey Boo Boo junk portrait is most beautimus, all "glitzy" and glammy. Just like Alana at a pageant! You'd better redneckognize -- Mecier spent 50 hours creating this thing. And you can watch it all in this video.
Mecier used about 25 pounds of trash and found objects to make this portrait -- and as you'll see in the video, it's huge. He was even thoughtful enough to include a bunch of Honey Boo Boo-related objects in the portrait:
Highlights include two cans of hair spray, three tiaras, make-up, mascara, fake eyelashes, coupons, sketti, butter, ten cheese balls, two Red Bulls, one Mountain Dew, a McDonald's chicken nugget, a pink Snuggy box, an empty toilet paper roll, one cabbage patch doll and a jar of Pigs Feet. No roadkill was injured during the making of this portrait!
The man knows his Thompson family, right? And I love that the soundtrack to the video is a series of classic Alana quotes in her own voice. Only thing missing here is a little pig running around the studio!
You know what? I started out a hater. It's true. But Honey Boo Boo and family just won me over with their good-naturedness, their frankness, and especially Mama June's delicious way with words. And somehow, this crazy portrait just makes me like them more. I mean, that's one of the things America does best -- we take what others might consider "junk" and we make magic out of it. Like this guy! Watch.
