McDonald's Won't Be Lovin' This NYC Sidewalk Art Piece by Banksy Shoe shine hits chain's locations

Anti-Ronald McDonald art has a long, proud, often vomitous history. Banksy adds to that tradition today, unveiling a menacing Ronald having his giant shoes shined as part of his "Better Out Than In" artist residency on the streets of New York. According to Banksy's site:

"A fibreglass replica of Ronald McDonald having his shoes shined by a real live boy. The sculpture will visit the sidewalk outside a different McDonald's every lunchtime for the next week. Today: South Bronx."

It's going to be a long week for McDonald's store managers. Via ANIMAL NY.

UPDATE: Here's an Instagram video of the first McDonald's visit.
