Have you ever been in a museum and thought to yourself, "that’s not art" or “I could do that myself".
That’s how 17-year-old TJ Khayatan felt when he recently visited the San Franciso Museum of Modern Art. So he decided to play a prank on fellow museum-goers by leaving a pair of glasses on the floor and walking away to see what would happen.
Instead of ignoring the glasses, or handing them in to lost property, people mistook them for a piece of art and began taking photos.
TJ documented all this on Twitter account, in a tweet that has been retweeted almost 60,000 times since Monday.

Speaking to Buzzfeed News, he said “Upon first arrival we were quite impressed with the artwork and paintings presented in the huge facility,“However, some of the ‘art’ wasn’t very surprising to some of us. We stumbled upon a stuffed animal on a grey blanket and questioned if this was really impressive to some of the nearby people."
We double dare someone to go IMMA and try this. We'd love to see what would happen.
