Fifteen views of Asscrack
Fifteen views of Asscrack (亀裂十五景) is a parody of 36 views of Mount Fuji, which is an ukiyo-e series of large, color woodblock prints by the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760–1849) and consists of countless prints created between 1826 and 1833. This parody on the other hand depicts Neckbeard Asscrack in differing seating and inadequate clothing from a variety of different places and distances. The first 15 were included in the original publication and, due to their popularity, ten more were supposedly added after the original publication (we really, really hope not).
This work of art was originally posted on Reddit and took place in a Richmond Magic: The Gathering tournament. It is useful for starting discussions and/or shitstorms regarding tournament decorum and how acceptable it is or isn't to be fat. Claims that the man posing in these photos was banned by DCI are no longer unsubstantiated. (Archive Link) His ban has since run out.
The Fifteen Views
- Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji, the artwork whose description was spoofed in the lede. Thankfully, this article doesn't have thirty-six (plus ten) asscracks.
- Keep America Beautiful, an anti-littering ad campaign most known for the "Crying Indian" ad (who was actually portrayed by an actor of Italian descent), which the pictures seem to be spoofing at times. The tagline of the Crying Indian ad was "People start pollution. People can stop it."
