Salvador Dali's Dizzying Dinner Party (VIDEO)

And you thought Marina Abramovic's MOCA dinner was crazy! Everyone's favorite surrealist known for his over-the-top mustache apparently could throw a pretty wild bash back in the day, and we have the video to prove it.

This is some absolutely priceless newsreel footage from 1941. The party was at a posh hotel in Monterey, California and theme was 'Night in a Surrealist Forest,' obviously. There were Unicorn costumes, red velvet beds, and baby lion cubs, meaning that it was another run of the mill dinner party, right? This is just one more reason why our mustachioed, lobster-loving artist friend Dali sounds like the funnest dinner date ever.
