    How did Banksy slip right in with these Stuffy art collectors and not look out of place, unless hes one of them...smh

    This is retarded. The painting sucks and anyone that bid that much is also retarded. Also the artist should be charged with destruction of property as the gentleman clearly bought the painting before he \"decided\" to shred it. LOCK HIM UP!

    What\'s wrong with people, spending that kind of money for a mediocre work? There are tons of much more talented artists. I know that buying junk like that can be used to launder money, but at least, if you\'re laundering money, support talent!

    I\'m amazed by how that mechanism still worked after so many years (even if perhaps it eventually got stuck). ...But the funniest thing of this is that the buyer now has a unique and much more valuable \"work of art\" (???). ... 3:)

    Why is the paper bright white in the frame, but dull white or brownish when it comes through the shredder? i.e, the intact part in the frame and the shredded part outside the frame look like different pieces of paper. (Not saying they are, but it looks strange.)

    What battery did you use and how many years ago and it didn\'t lost it\'s charge? I guess you activated it by remote control, but the receiver consumes too much energy not to drain the battery after weeks, not years. If you managed to do that , you are not an artist , you are the new Tesla and you will get a Nobel price for solving the biggest problem of batteries.

    it is a bullshit fake story..... any dumb ass art curator knows a picture isn\'t one foot thick and 25 pounds heavy.. FAKE AS F. totally produced video with actors. GAY. CNN is using this same exact film clip.. from where? who filmed it and knew to keep the camera on it? Who the fuck is going to accept a piece of art without examining it before placing it for auction. FAKE OR DID BANKSY CASH IN AND SOLD THIS PIECE TO THE CURATOR AND THEY WELL KNEW WHAT TO EXPECT.
