Flooded McDonald’s (2008) is a film by artist collective SUPERFLEX. In the video, a life-size replica of the interior of a McDonald’s restaurant gradually floods. Furniture is lifted up by the water, trays of food and drinks start to float around, and electrical elements short circuit as the space is completely submerged and destroyed. Based in Copenhagen, the members of SUPERFLEX investigate systems of power, globalization, and the social and environmental costs of consumer culture.
