Benny & BJ videotaped their social experiment, as they went homeless and busked around LA for two days performing in Hollywood and Venice Beach and only lived off the money they made while street performing for those two days—this video is the documentary of that adventure/experiment. Doing so, they both pose the question—what is an artist? Is an artist someone who packs arenas, or is it someone who can capture a person’s attention in any environment at any time?
