    Did anyone ever consider there is a second print inside the frame that dropped down through the shredder and the other print simply rolled up at the bottom.

    People are so mad. Im not sure what they are trying to prove. Like call it fake or set up. I mean what all pranks are set up. And what is a fake prank anyways. Unless everyone in the auction knew that was going to happen but judging from the reaction. Im guessing very few knew it was going to shred.

    Actually Banksy should be liable for damages.... If I sell you a car I can't destroy it after you pay for it...

    I love how the video doesn't actually SHOW the picture being shredded
    You'd think Banksy would have hired someone to covertly make sure the whole thing was filmed -_-

    What gains more value than gold, diamonds, even stocks... etc. Art.... People who are buying these pieces are doing it as investments. Folks mocking the buyers... need to understand that whoever bought this will double or triple his money in a few years and laugh all the way to the bank.

    Can someone explain? I'm lost the shredder was pre-installed at the bottom by Banksy or did the person who bought the art shred it themselves? (okay edit re-read the title of the vid but still new there a timer on it?!) How tf does that work?

    HOAX !!! SCAM ... there is no way Sothaby would put an item for sale without inspecting it first be several experts and adjusters, hence it had to be out of the frame. Secondly, the frame would also be inspected and no way it could have a battery operated mechanism that would pass the metal detectors and security !!! Or he could have planted a BOMB and just took everyone in the room out !!!! Hence, some one from Sotheby was on this PUBLICLY STUNT .... Dont be a fool like they want you to be .and THINK ... USE YOUR MIND.
