Found Art: Serbian Groom Trolls for Bride

The image above and those below were pasted in a document that opened with the following (loosely translated) text:

“To all unmarried ones who would like to spend their life by my side and within all the beauties of my home. Please look below at all the magic of my home that I have decorated with taste, perhaps just for YOU. Don Milisav Juan Gonzales Brzi, Contact: +33-#########″

Apparently Milisav’s bride hunt became something of a meme in the BCS – Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian – speaking world a few years back, the document was emailed from person to person and wound up on some blogs.  I haven’t seen it crop up on the English-speaking web however and I thought I’d share. If you like Daniela Rossell’s photo series Ricas y Famosas, which features the super rich of Mexico posing in their over-the-top interiors, you’ll love Milisav. And thanks to the Houston ex-Yugoslav community for sharing this gem with me.

Milisav in his throne room…

Milisav in his boudoir. Remember folks, you can never have too much gold!

No, really, you can NEVER have too much gold.


Tile too, you can never have too much tile.

Oooo, is that tile?

Yeah, that’s tile alright. (But is that his mom’s robe?)

Fur, never too much fur. Especially when it’s time to hibernate.

More fur.

Fur + rifle + cake


Milisav in his home office plotting world domination.

Milisav shows his European disdain for the insipid American convention of smiling pleasantly in photographs.

Nope, you sure don’t want to remove that plastic – EVER.

Milisav and his “come hither” look.

Taking another stab at the “come hither” thing…

Check out the photographer reflected in the mirror. I think it’s his mom. “Oh, Milisav, you look so handsome, your home is any girl’s dream!” Especially that Barbie Dream House furniture…

God, it just goes on, doesn’t it?

I sense a Sun King complex…

    Do you notice how in the second to last photo, the plaid robe that he wears in the last photo is bunched up on the couch in the foreground? I want to hear the conversation where he decided to change robes, and why.

    Sorry, not Serbian, but Russian most probably. But, since everyone mistakes Serbia for Siberia which is half a world away, no biggie.

    That empty-shelf look is part of the plea:

    “The world is my oyster but where is the pearl?”

    And then it could be shots for an auction catalogue.

    People who never smile, probably have wonky teeth. I bet he could bite a hog through a fence, what do ya think?

    I like how he has all that gold and fur, but can’t afford a digital camera to take these pictures with. How many megapixels do you think this is?

    I think really his strongest feature is the chins that protectively prop up his frown. You can never have enough chins.

    This guy thinks this stuff is going to get him a bride? She may have to be really dumb AND stupid. All this gaud; where is there a good contractor when you need one? This all has to go. Let’s put it this way. His furnishings didn’t do a thing for me. Neither did his mannerisms. If this is what’s out there, I’m glad I’m still single. EEEWWwww!!!

    Somewhere, Donald Trump is looking at these photos and seriously considering a sex change! He’s finally met his soul mate in taste.

    No sheets. Most of the shelving is empty. Not a single personal possession. All furniture is wrapped, except where he pulled it off to pose (see bunched up behind furniture). I think this is a model home, or a home for sale that he snuck in to have photos shot. The change of clothing is to try and fool the masses.

    Just to think how much famine we could stop with all this fortune… maybe seeing some children being saved by his “fortune” would bring a smile to his face. Much less worries for him…
