A Kid Punched a $1.5 Million Work of Art, is Unintentionally Punk AF

by Eric Thurm


A Taiwanese 12-year-old has done perhaps the simultaneously coolest and most embarrassing thing you could do as a pre-teen -- destroying a ridiculously expensive, centuries-old work of art. The boy tripped and broke his fall with Flowers, a 1660 painting signed by artist Paolo Porpora. According to The Guardian, he will not punished or forced to pay restoration costs, since the painting is insured, which we assume was basically his evil plan. Watch an exclusive clip of what he said to his parents below.  [via Vulture]
