NUTELLAAARRGHHHH

"Nutellapriesterin," uploaded to YouTube by "CarryFlag." I don't know anything about the performance art this documents, but I prefer to experience it with no context whatsoever. (Thanks, I think, Meredith Yayanos)

    Banana Skirt: just look at it.

    Josephine Baker? Nutella? “Just look at it.”? The WTF is strong in this one!

    • B E Pratt says:

       That pic reminds me of Carmen Miranda singing The Lady in the Tutti Frutti hat from the Busby Berkeley flick The Gangs All Here. A must see film with practically no plot to get in the way of mondo bizarro song and dance numbers. Not only does Carmen wear that HAT (there’s an I Love Lucy take-off on it), but just LOOK at those 6 foot bananas being waved around!

        Josephine Baker looked a lot batter in the Banana Skirt; and got a Legion d’ Honour for her work for the Resistance during WW2. Pretty damn classy.

       Yeah, a red leotard, what was that dude thinking?

    Wet and messy fetish (WAM), sometimes known as sploshing, is a form of sexual fetishism whereby a person becomes aroused when substances are deliberately and generously applied to the naked skin, predominantly the face, or to the clothes people are wearing.[1] Several websites are dedicated to WAM fandom Messy substances can include whipped cream, mud, shaving foam, custard, baked beans, ketchup, ice cream, pudding, chocolate sauce, peanut butter, Japanese-style lotion, paint, oil or gunge/slime, cake batter etc. A subject will often be pelted with cream pies, slimed or sit on cakes. Wet substances are mainly water but can also include other liquids such as fruit juice, milk or alcohol (usually beer). …

    Damn, now I want Nutella.

    I know! I know! It’s “man’s inhumanity to man”, right?

    “The Death Of All The Dinosaurs?”

  8. bzishi says:

    Okay, I think I get most of it. I’m not confused by the smearing of Nutella, the banana skirt, eating of the banana skirt, the singing, or the flag waving. But what is up with the giant red pointy hat? Does it have something to do with the gimp-fascist duality?

    • Paul Renault says:

      My first impression at the 1:45 mark (I hadn’t noticed/remembered the tile of the piece) was “Hunh!  The man is lying face down in front to the ‘altar’ – just like when Catholic priests are ordained…”

      The title of the piece is Nutellapriesterin.  You might want to revise what you got from it.

      /one whole jar just for his head.  How many jars for all of her?

      Redshirt. 

    • Gilbert Wham says:

       Oh, now THERE’S a band-name…

    • LuisDanielCarbia says:

      The music -”La Saeta” http://youtu.be/J_7sCnZrQ5Q played as a traditional march- and the pointy hat of a “Nazareno” are references to spanish Holy Week, maybe viewed as some extreme catholic ceremonial.
      This celebration is an easy prey for fun and sarcasm. My favorite is http://youtu.be/7flvpfnpBfk

  9. Accompanied by a good old Sevillian Holy Week Brass Band marching song and a weird “capirote” guy.

    That´s some awesome religion I would like to adhere.

    • Smash Martian says:

      >That´s some awesome religion I would like to adhere.

      I think with that amount of Nutella, the religion would adhere to you.

    … a sound approach to Nutella.

    Everyone is so worried about HFCS, but I stay awake thinking about Palm Oil and this hasn’t helped me much. http://www.saynotopalmoil.com/

  12. $19428857 says:

    Given the obvious Josephine Baker riffing, does this qualify as performing in blackface and should I be outraged?

  13. Nell Anvoid says:

    Nutella IS context.

    At least they’re not using Vegamite.

  14. cstatman says:

    and still?   nutella rules!   :)   :P   

  15. It’s good for your skin isn’t it? I should try that sometime.

  16. UnderachievingSheep says:

    Did these two performers from the local fetish club confuse the venue of their act and ended up at a school gym? Also, is that a portrait of Steve Forrest in the “altar”? I have so many questions that I am sort of unsettled now…

  17. subhan says:

    This is the kind of stuff that makes Republicans want to defund the NEA

  18. gumbowing says:

    What’s the big deal? It’s just two people who love each other very, very much.

  19. chris jimson says:

    I know exactly what this performance represents: A chance meeting on a dissecting table of a sewing machine and an umbrella.

  20. capnmarrrrk says:

    Some things in life need no context. This is one of them. It’s perfect as is.

  21. Lemoutan says:

    I, for one, welcome our new nutellaceous overlords.

  22. Actionverb says:

    Would definitely give some credence to Pistorius’s defense.

  23. robuluz says:

    I bet it was easier to get the lid of the jar in rehearsal.

  24. SomeGuyNamedMark says:

    Needs more raw meat

  25. Rich Keller says:

    Where can you get jars of Nutella in that size?!!  I Need to Know!

    • paulio says:

      eBay http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/HUGE-NUTELLA-5KG-TUB-Ferrero-Hazelnut-Chocolate-Spread-Cocoa-GIANT-Jar-Italy-/230885696479?pt=AU_Food&hash=item35c1dc23df&_uhb=1#ht_4915wt_1163

  26. 10xor01 says:

    It’s sort of like a sweeter, more operatic version of Carrie.

  27. Igpajo says:

    Was that Bjork and Beck?

  28. Doran says:

    I’ll wait for the Vivid version.

  29. Wild Rumpus says:

    same genre, the classic butterdance:

  30. Jan_Willem says:

    As if anyone cares after this Nutella smear campaign: the German song is “Ruhe, meine Seele!” by Richard Strauss (lyrics Karl Henckell) from Vier letzte Lieder (1948). But perhaps that’s too much context for some.

    • Martijn Vos says:

      And Richard Strauss is of course better known for “Also Sprach Zarathustra” from 2001: A Space Odyssey. (In case anyone thought he might be the guy from the waltzes.)

  31. redesigned says:

    not so easy to open the jar when your hands are covered in nutella is it?

  32. Felix Kellewald says:

    Seriously though, anyone got an idea where this is from? She finishes by saying ‘das Fest der Kunst ist eröffnet’, referencing some art festival in German.

  33. CLamb says:

    All that ritual makes pastafarianism seem quakerish by comparison.

  34. guest says:

    She has a handful of other videos, most in a similar vein. I am guessing she now has an art degree from her college –  and a job at Edeka, where her suggestions for product displays go strangely unimplemented…

  35. Adam Rice says:

    Now we see the violence inherent in the system.

  36. keithrc says:

    My takeaway here is that when you’re already covered in Nutella, it’s hard to open another jar of Nutella.  I’m certain there’s an important concept relating to moderation and the dangers of over-indulgence there, but it’s juuust eluding me.

    Yoko Ono inspired :)
