Here’s the Official Trailer for Dismaland, Banksy’s Twisted “Bemusement Park”

Earlier this month, graffiti artist Banksy announced the opening of Dismaland, a limited-run “bemusement park” that turns the cheery magic of Disneyland into a grim and ramshackle dystopia. Now the park has released an official trailer, and it’s a fun watch that comically hews to the template of promotional vacation videos.

The send-up starts, naturally, with an unhappy family of four, who decide to escape suburban ennui by piling into the minivan and driving to Weston-super-Mare, England, where “the happiest place on Earth” awaits. Needless to say, something a tad different is in store, but at least the kids have a good time.
