Huffington Post - about 3 years
Brooklyn-based artist Jon Burgerman was in Seoul, South Korea recently when he posed for this photo in front of a giant Bruce Willis movie poster: When he was back in New York, Burgerman noticed there were many, many violent movie posters in the subway. He decided to reprise his Seoul shtick, and pose as if characters in the movie posters were actually murdering him. He was shot with an arrow by Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss: Sophia Bush, of "Chicago P.D.," fired a bullet straight through Burgerman's head. As did Jon Seda. Then Daniel Craig also shot Burgerman in the head. And Orlando Bloom's Legolas launched an arrow at Burgerman's chest.

"I also find it curious that it's so common in public spaces the most exalted members of society, celebrities, are brandishin ...
