Yarnbombing Goes Mainstream on Daytime T.V. [Video]

Our friends the Looons, who yarnbombed a tree down the block from Observer HQ, have taken their work to the big-time, and it’s not even that big of a piece. Unlike Olek’s huge Wall Street bull sweater or some of the other big yarnbombings out there, this was a fairly simple task, bombing an Aeron office chair. That chair happened to belong to a Good Morning America cohost, though, so now middle America is hip to trend. While this may mean the end of this venerable art form, watching George Stephanopoulos get giddy about some string is pretty funny.
