  • Don't expect this to be up for long, as it shows Banksy himself clearly in the audience. Grab it while you can kids, our hero is uber keen on censoring anything about him by others - esp the true stuff :-) Copy/ paste & search; London Dada Banksy Unmasked for Real

  • slick move

  • I have one old radio I think this was first radio in world if you want I send his picture

  • Bravo! Encore!

  • wow that was SAVAGE

  • Nice

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

  • But why didn't the entire thing shred, why only half? Flaw or purposely??

  • Years? What was the power source?

  • What's the name of the picture behind the auctioneer?

  • Wondering how much is it gonna cost now...

  • Fucking legend. A troll for the history books! Banksy never disappoints. Genius. I can't take it.

  • This is an artist's work come to complete fruition of it's original inception.

  • 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!

  • still questions

  • Legend.

  • groso!

  • I think now that half shredded art piece is priceless, at least doubled. Good investment.

  • I hope you added a bomb there to avoid selling it again shreddered

  • 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!

  • *Girl With Balloon has left the group chat*

  • Truly Legendary!

  • What an evil genius! :O

  • Genius. Love the idea of a self destructing artwork.

  • Everything's in order..

  • I researched this. It had a modified clapper in it . Instead of it listening for hands clapping it listens for the sound of a gavel hitting the table.

  • 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:)

  • 🔥 🔥 🔥 This will blow y-our mind for sure! 🔥🔥🔥 🔥🔥🔥▶ tinyurl.com/r3mahxg ◀🔥🔥🔥 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 Thank me later.

  • A win

  • Biggest troll ever!

  • 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.)

  • Why would someone so this. Is there a reason did this?

  • 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.

  • De la merde. C'est de la merde. Calculée, téléphonée, de bourges et pour bourges. Boboksy.

  • Ironically since this is Art the painting should be worth more now, I would definitely buy that painting after, since it has been everywhere on the internet and on the news! #troll #backfired

  • The prank of the century

  • Круто!!! DDDDDDD

  • Wow I can draw a girl with a balloon shit art is easy

  • Savage

  • He hates that people like his art that much? I don't know how to feel about this.

  • We all need a good laugh...

  • SO ARE WE JUSY GOING TO IGNORE THE FACT THAT THE BLADES ARE IN SIDEWAYS

  • I love it, stick to those inflated auction houses!!!

  • 🐒

  • This is modern art!

  • My art teacher thought this was amazing so she showed it to my class. Ur a legend 😂 but actually tho great job! Ur art is incredible!

  • I don’t see how people are saying this is illegal, it’s his painting right?

  • ...😂😂😂 fuck em.

  • was it his painting? I’m lost

  • We watched this in my art class and apparently not that this was shredded it's actually worth more he hated it when his art would be auctioned off it was meant for the people

  • DESTRUCTION: 100

  • Banksy is kind of full of himself

  • James Bond 007 shht

  • Black banksy injured his right ring finger when he ordered the cutters. Camera banksy has no knowledge of shredder. Gray lady banksy is too conspicuous. Pink asian beauty banksy turned around too early. Picture girl banksy is alright.

  • This looks scripted asf

  • I C O N I C

  • Why tho

  • If it was a "secret" shredder. Why is there a window in the back?

  • One should always be willing to destroy their own work! As A ghostwriter...I ruined the Disney Star Wars B version screenplays. However I still have the higher quality originals that need to be destroyed as well. Let "Er rip!

  • 0:20 Is that SpongeBob SquarePants on the top screen?!?!

  • Alright US-tv, that’s enough...a week on my recommendations is enough. You win 😭.

  • I think this is punishment for spending money on a painting when you could’ve spent all that somewhere more important...art is to be admired and appreciated, not to be owned and forgotten

  • Hilarious

  • Even more valuable shreded IMO. You genius!

  • Hey I was alive that day

  • But why

  • Fake news

  • sure seems like a see through attempt for publicity stunt...it worked...the world is chattering away about some piece of crap painting, made by a Warhol knock off piece of crap artist, sold for gobs of piece of crap fiat dollars, in an elitist piece of crap market place

  • Banksy is fucking genius

  • Just like how the girl’s balloon is flying away, the buyer can no longer have the painting. The girl can still see the balloon and the buyer can still see the painting, but neither of them can get want they want; it’s out of reach.

  • I saw this on Reddit

  • the lady at 0:56 in the blue she clapped she probably was like good thing I didn't buy that

  • #37 on trending lol

  • I can't help but think that Mr. T.O.P. would have loved this 🤠

  • Ahhh the retardation of America...

  • Best performance piece yet, fine art is very over valued for something that can be destroyed in seconds.

  • Why do you not want it up for auction?

  • Absolute MADLAD!

  • Congratulations you played yourself

  • You sir are the ultimate stunt queen.

  • Trolls

  • 0:48

  • Since 2010 no one has proved this fake > us-tv.org/tv/video-BYD2irfjc38.html

  • You mean to tell me all I had to do to make 880,000 pounds was paint a kid with a heart shaped ballon and then shred it?

  • My art teacher showed this in class today 😱😂

  • How does it work? Is it remote controlled?

  • "Banksy" is gay.

  • Banksy - idiot.

  • Bruh! I just realized that's the girl with the balloon that you spray paint on a wall in Infamous: Second Son

  • Wait what

  • Makes the painting even more epic to be honest

  • Master troll

  • The real story here: Banksy created a battery that could hold its charge for LONGER THAN A YEAR and power a shredder! OMG, the secret of having my Apple Watch last longer than a day is with Banksy all along!!

  • So, Banksy created a battery that held its charge to power a shredder for more than a year... Dear Banksy, can you please go and work for Apple instead? Clearly, your advanced knowledge of batteries will help them to finally create an iPhone and Apple Watch that could last longer than a day!!

  • NO WAYYY YOOOOOOOOO

  • Hey, was that Pierce Brosnan heading for the door?

  • How cool!

  • Greatest art Prank of all time?

  • I luv it so much, 😚

  • Chaotic neutral
