Like Hoogerbrugge’s other large-scale multi-screen animation Dow Jones, Parade is an ongoing work to which more characters can be added forever, though more screens will be required to show them all.
Rows and rows of Hoogerbrugge’s favourite iconic characters all jump and jiggle patiently while awaiting their turn to take the front row, where they demonstrate their particular skills exuberantly while wearing someone else’s clothes, or none at all: Berlusconi (remember him? dismember him!), Salvador Dali, Motorhead’s Lemmy, Gaddafi’s skeleton (for little else remains), Andy Warhol, Vladimir Putin (in a dress and flexing his monster cock), Gene Simmons, and a very Sexy Pope are among the characters.
