This Andy Warhol production finds Joe Dallesandro as Joe, a lice-ridden impotent junkie who lives with Holly (Holly Woodlawn) in a Lower East Side slum in New York. Holly is a transvestite who spends time collecting trash, going to the Fillmore East, and cruising for sex. Joe is only interested in his next fix, and graphic displays of needles piercing flesh and degrading human situations deglamorize drug use better than any board of education film or public service messages. Jane (Jane Forth) is the acid casualty housewife who listens to Pink Floyd. Male and female nudity and masturbation are featured. The color process is not credited, but technical aspects are better overall than most previous Warhol productions. Woodlawn was the inspiration for the Lou Reed song “Take a Walk on the Wild Side.”
Actually it’s a whopper from Burger King. And some Heinz Tomato Ketchup. Yes the original. And finally in slightly better resolution and quality. A classic ASMR trigger scene, so if you got ASMR you might wanna bookmark this video for a good time.
Because of the many comments here i feel i should add additional info about this video.
It is from danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth, the scene appears in his art movie “66 scenes from america” which was filmed in 1981.
Jorgen Leth did not know Warhol, but he was a bit obsessed with him so he definitely wanted to have him in his movie. Friends told Leth that he “should forget about it” and that he could never even approach Warhol.
Anyways – Leth was stubborn so when he came to New York for his movie he simply went to the “factory”, the building Warhol had rented to work at and despite all other claims simply managed to get to Warhol’s studio inside where he met Andy Warhol while he was currently working.
Leth just told Warhol about his movie and the idea of having Andy being one of the 66 scenes along with the highly “symbolic” burger. Warhol immediately liked the idea and agreed to the scene. Andy liked the scene as he said because it was such a real scene, something he would like to do.
So Andy Warhol agreed to come for filming a few days later.
Jorgen leth was a bit afraid that Warhol would not come. He had invited him to a photo studio in new York at 14th street/5th avenue that belonged to a friend of him.
Leth had his assistant buy some burgers and directly advised him to buy some in halfway neutral packaging as Leth was afraid that Warhol might reject some brands (Warhol always had an obsession with some of his favorite brands).
So Andy Warhol finally did arrive at the studio, of course along with his bodyguards, and when he saw the selection of burgers the assistant had brought he asked “Where is the McDonald’s?” and Leth – slightly in panic – was immediately like “I thought you would maybe not like to identify… ” and Warhol answered “no that is the most beautiful”. Leth offered to let his assistant quickly run to McDonald’s but Warhol refused like “No, never mind, I will take the Burger King.”
Directing the video was pretty simple. Leth said to him: “You simply have to eat this hamburger. And then after you finished, you have to eat it, after you finish you should just tell the camera, to the camera, my name is Andy Warhol, I have just eaten a hamburger. ”
Leth was worried during the taking as he forgot to give Warhol a glass of water and the bottle of ketchup was brand new, so it was hard to get it out. But being a real warhol there was only one take, one try, so Warhol pulled it through in just one take, roughly 5 minutes. But Leth liked the scene and how it came out, so that is why today you can see it here.
The original movie “66 Scenes from america” is rather hard to get, but it is included in a Jorgen Leth collection you can buy on amazon:
And another comment from me about “Why Coca Cola, Campbell’s Tomato Soup and why a whopper from burger king?”
I’ll answer that with a quote from Andy Warhol:
“What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it. ”
This is actually an interesting piece of art. I call it “art” because that is my personal feeling. Some modern art is merely much more than a bucket of paint thrown against a canvas to me, so i guess if that counts why should Andy not count as art in this vid? But yeah it’s questionable if it is really art or just Andy eating a burger. I guess maybe that’s why he liked the idea, just like coke or Campbell’s tomato soup – something everyone could have, no matter how much money he had.

Pop Art by Klaus Honnef is published by Taschen and provides an overview of this artistic movement
Pop Art took key elements of mass communication and the mass-produced commodities that were shaping the 20th century, and boldly mixed them with fine art. Suddenly ordinary objects were given a colorful, new context and countless memorable images were created, and then embraced by the mass media that had inspired them.
This book features many of the most famous and infamous Pop Art images. Roy Lichtenstein’s M-Maybe, Jasper Johns’ Flag, Ed Ruscha’s Standard Station and Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s soup can. Even in this handy little guide to Pop Art, Warhol appears larger than life more than 20 years after his death.
Publishers and writers are still attempting to grasp Pop Art today with frequent retrospectives of the key artists and themes. This book is an easy way of understanding an art movement that is still evolving.

Andy Warhol was a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. After a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became a renowned and sometimes controversial artist. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture and advertisement. He worked in a range of mediums, including painting, sculpture, film, and music. He founded Interview Magazine and was the author of numerous books, including The Philosophy of Andy Warhol and Popism: The Warhol Sixties. Andy Warhol is also notable as a gay man who lived openly as such before the gay liberation movement. His studio (The Factory) was a famous gathering place that brought together distinguished intellectuals, drag queens, playwrights, Bohemian street people, Hollywood celebrities, and wealthy patrons.
Warhol has been the subject of numerous retrospective exhibitions, books, and feature and documentary films. He coined the widely used expression “15 minutes of fame”. In his hometown of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, The Andy Warhol Museum celebrates his life and work.
The highest price ever paid for a Warhol painting is US$100 million for a 1963 canvas titled Eight Elvises. The private transaction was reported in a 2009 article in The Economist, which described Warhol as the “bellwether of the art market”. $100 million is a benchmark price that only Jackson Pollock, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Pierre-August Renoir, Gustav Klimt and Willem de Kooning have achieved.
