It all started when Lana didn’t know what to do with the 15,000 coins that she had left from her previous art installation. Instead of transporting the heavy pile back home, she and Jamahl thought of a better idea… “So my Airbnb guest and I decided to place 15000 2p coins on the canal and record what would happen…. #coinsbythecanal,” Jamahl wrote on Twitter. The results were hilarious! Keep on scrolling to take a look.
