what about those guys that lay on beds of nails they might enjoy this and then you'll have an even harder time finding a seat.

That's just kind of crazy.

It's no joke, those are real metal spikes.

I thought this was a joke, but look what this bench did to the inner thighs of this girl: http://youtu.be/dQw4w9WgXcQ

You could easily sit on the edge along the side. I wouldn't mind doing that

Ouch. Taking things a little too far, perhaps?

This is somewhat cruel.

I like the artist´s initial intention, to make the viewer alert of the commercialisation of our society.
Imho, it is a piece of art and should not be applied anywhere in the world.
That´s cruel...

If it's presented as a piece of art it would be legal. As a bench, I'm a afraid not. Unless it's China or such.

Even if it's a private business, the law still applies as long as you're open to paying public. And if someone got hurt, you'd also be sued. But in China the official would just look at you and ask if you're deaf.

Being the practical joking bastard that I am, I'd put corks on every spike and sit there anyway.
