  • Glenn Sepulveda (Oct 14, 2018)

    Don't tell me it's some kind of a prank!..coz it ain't funny..

  • JDM Imports (Oct 6, 2018)

    hope he wiped his fingerprints off it .. the law have been after him for years!

  • Toast (Oct 10, 2018)

    JDM Imports They already know who he is. They just won't tell anybody for their own benefit.

  • great marketing ploy , and publicity stunt awesome work of art for the publicity point of view!

    0:49 That guy on the right side is having a great time.

  • Laura Singleton (Oct 20, 2018)

    I think he is the one to press the button.

  • Alamda Ali (Oct 18, 2018)


  • SUB TO PEWDIEPIE (Oct 7, 2018)

    Look at about 0:39 you can see the auctioneer looks like after slamming the hammer he presses a button

  • Beanie Draws (Oct 17, 2018)

    Yeah, that's definitely a press, not just writing. I bet he was instructed to press a button and just hoped it wasn't noticed. Possibly just turning off a mic, but I bet he was instructed to press as soon as it was sold.

  • Mark Travis (Oct 12, 2018)

    Good eye

  • anthony booth (Oct 6, 2018)

    I want to see the actual video uninterrupted/unedited pure reactions from the crowd. Regardless if Banksy orchestrated this with Sotheby's years ago or not, it still happened.

  • Whofan06 (Oct 8, 2018)

    I'm surprised so many people are commenting "oh its orchestrated its fake" like yeah sure the auction house was most likely in on the stunt but I highly doubt they were the ones intended to be shocked, they get the money either way, hell they might get even more money for it now. Its the people trying to buy it they wanted to surprise, since you know, they were willing to pay a ridiculous amount of money for a painting and actually wanted it.

  • emilio robles (Oct 8, 2018)

    Lol, this was recently plotted, not “years ago” banksy is now on the trend of fake pranks

  • Fescron_ (Oct 6, 2018)

    So you're telling me you added a battery and receiving circuit in there that kept listening for a signal for years, only to shred it now after it heard the right signal? And nobody ever noticed that being in there? Hmm...

  • Eric Parent (Dec 6, 2018)

    +DXTb0nEXD They're talking about the battery for the receiver. Take your time to read through the post before jumping the gun next time. Cheers.

    +Fescron_ depends on the radio if its Bluetooth low energy that could operate for 10 years with that massive lipo cell you can see at 9 Seconds; bluetooth Low Energy is designed to enable devices with low power consumption. Several chipmakers including Cambridge Silicon Radio, Dialog Semiconductor, Nordic Semiconductor, STMicroelectronics, Cypress Semiconductor, Silicon Labs and Texas Instruments have introduced their Bluetooth Low Energy optimized chipsets over the last few years.

    ... but my question is... why is Spongebob on the TV at the top... 0:19

    Random Duck sorry didn’t realize one of the people here said it before me

  • paul harvey (Oct 7, 2018)

    Excellent prank but without a doubt, it took place with the prior knowledge of Sotheby's - It is the only auction house in the world that has a Department of Scientific Research and high value items like this will be subject to technology like the Bruker M6 Jetstream, spectrometry and X-Ray - The idea that they didn't discover multiple components inside prior to the actual auction is laughable.

  • Alamda Ali (Oct 18, 2018)

    yeah yeah. we know
