Controversal Korean Spider-Man Statue


zu5hqo18ji8xjzhmv4qcFile this under the most random Spider-Man story of all time. Evidently there’s a South Korean artist named Eunsuk Yoo who designed a Spider-Man statue for a mall. The statue is pretty awesome until you take a look at the crotch area. Several families have complained over the “excited” Spidey.  The shopping mall asked the artist to re-do the statue and make him less “excited.” The artist refused and put this statement on his Facebook page. 

I am the artist who made this piece. My reason for it was that I wanted apply the natural physical phenomenon to a superhero depict whats’s natural in the morning without lies and superficial-ness in a comical way.

The statue has since been taken down. What are your thoughts. Thanks to J Tyson Lambert for the heads up on our Facebook page. Warning, if you click on the link to the story, be aware it isn’t censored.

    @3 - I only skimmed briefly skimmed the article the first time so I went back and read it in full. The columnist did ineed go out of his way to include every double entendre he could think of. Of course, I can't blame him. Some stories demand it, and this was no erection -er- exception. As for the artist, he really comes off as a dick (no pun intended ... oh who am I kidding) with his comments. He had no idea it could be "potentially interpreted as lewd" - is he kidding? The funniest part is when he says "I'll reach out to the public with a better work next time." - does he really think he will be hired again for any public art? Good luck with that.

    The Avengers arrive, and Captain America commands, "Which way did Utron go?!" AND SPIDEY POINTS THE WAY!!! (Laughed madly for five minutes when I saw the uncensored shots--thanks guys, I needed that!)

    That artist is a dick! (pun intended). He made such a cool statue, and then he had to go and ruin it. And he's totally in the wrong. If you are commissioned to do an art piece, you should do what the client requests, because that's what you've been paid to do. If you want to do some overtly sexual piece that makes some kind of artsy statement (like giving Spidey a boner for some stupid reason), you should do that on your own time, and then try to sell it (if you can).

    My thoughts? This douche wanted to put a boner on Spidey for the lulz, and wanted to see if he could get away with it.

    Holy crap. I eagerly await Brad bringing up this topic in the next podcast's Spider-News segment.

    Aaaaw, that statue looks so cool! Why did the artist have to go and ruin it like that?!
