The message is for the media: Ant Farm and Media Burn

Ant Farm's satirical media event Media Burn (1975) parodied the conventions of a media spectacle. A fictional politician, the "Artist President," introduced the main event: a sculptural, transformed car crashing through a pyramid of television sets. Real local news channels covered the story, which went national.
