The opening of the Banksy ‘Bemusement Park’ caused ripples last week and now the art installation has a released an online ad looking to entice (and disappoint) even more visitors.
The park, based in Weston-super-Mare, opened last week to a frantic media desperately trying to snap pictures of the secretive installation, since then it has looked to emulate the worst points of theme parks with a non-responsive ticket booking website – and now a sinister advert.
A dark voiceover stated: “Is there something missing in your life? Do you need to get out more? Then stop what you’re doing, and come to the happiest place on Earth.
“This is a theme park like no other. Dismaland – a place where all your dreams come true. So, what are you waiting for?”
The two minute online ad, which concludes with the screaming of children, has racked up over 286,906 views in just under a day.
