Also, i am afraid that people will now pay even more for this piece of art, lol :D
Now try it with the Mona Lisa
0:49 That guy on the right side is having a great time.
great marketing ploy , and publicity stunt awesome work of art for the publicity point of view!
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.
White haired guy at 0:49: "Well played, Banksy..."
hope he wiped his fingerprints off it .. the law have been after him for years!
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.
Look at about 0:39 you can see the auctioneer looks like after slamming the hammer he presses a button
... but my question is... why is Spongebob on the TV at the top... 0:19
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...
I don't know, the whole thing seems pretty staged. Still funny, though.
Now the frame and the painting will both be worth millions and be "historic art" which, to me is stupid. Art is to be seen, not owned.
鼻持ちならない金持ちの集まるオークションを 徹底してオチョクル姿勢 芸術家はこうでなくちゃね！ nice work..!!
Epitome of what is real art, evoke emotion.
this feels a bit fake
I think it was a fake stunt to A. Promote the art place B. Make the art more expensive now that it went viral C. All of the above D. None of the above (Thanks I am perfection I should've added this one too)
FBI: we have no evidence that he did this man under investigation: hold my beer
Even more valuable shreded IMO. You genius!
