Dismaland is the "bemusement park" conceived and designed by the notorious British artist Banksy. It's an art installation that functions as a life-size satire of Disney, and the prolific art-world provocateur has unveiled a two-minute trailer dedicated to the dystopian amusement park. The video starts off with a wholesome family being entreated to take a trip to the "happiest place on earth," though what they find is the direct opposite of that billing. The surreal milieu is suffused with disorder and darkness, if not outright despair, though the family does make it out exhausted and seemingly satisfied. Unfortunately, the smile on mom's face is short-lived. Check out the trailer below.
