Offbeat: Banksy Uses McNuggets in NY 'Pet Store'

Banksy, the British street artist [wiki], has opened a new 'installation/shop' in New York called the Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill. It's a small, unassuming storefront at 89 7th Ave in Greenwich Village, NYC.

It's not a real pet store, or a real grill. The cases and cages feature unusual exhibits like an animatronic rabbit putting on her make-up, a leopard (not real) sitting in a tree, and, the reason for our interest here at Fast Food News, 2 chicken McNuggets sipping from a container of McDonald's dipping sauce under the watchful eye of their Hen mother (shown above).

You can see video of the McNuggets and other exhibits at the Village Pet Store and Charcoal Grill in this video. There's a long shot of the McNuggets at 6 seconds and a close-up at 39 seconds:
