Banksy Punks Paris

In the 21st century of multimedia, of course there had to be a video to accompany the prank, and courtesy of the good people of YouTube this above clip of banksy and friends doing the 'How To Bit' is currently doing the rounds on the internet.

Maybe it's just me, but when watching the footage, I couldn't help but associate it with this current series of ads. Perhaps the advertising agency for HP could approach Banksy to be the next down with the kids 'maverick' in their 'We're corporate but also a little bit werrrr, a little bit weyyyyyy, a little bit arrrrgggh. We're's geezers. Give us your bastard money' campaign. (Catchphrase courtesy of this bloke.)

You know that Banksy bloke? he's shit he is.

That thing he did with the Israeli defensive wall...you know? Where basically he taunts the Joooish state? How about next time he tries taunting the suicide bombers and the islamist nutjobs and assorted murdering scumbags? Yeah, I know. I'm not holding my breath for that one either.

Artist shmartists.

banksy is awful, his coffee table social commentary is never original or executed with any intelligence. this contains some of the most unoriginal stuff i have ever seen, some of the things in this video remind me of a 14 year old amateur anti capitalist.

also this is prob just PR for paris hilton!

I'm sure Banksy will be back over for a return match the very second the Palestinian Authority erects a concrete wall right smack bang through someone's farm.

Salaam and Shalom

Edward the silly name:

No he fucking won't.

Who are you kidding?

What's worse? Erecting a wall or killing people because they are Jews?

Now put your cock away. Fuckwit.

Will you are a retard. earn some self-respect and research the situation even a tiny bit bit before making such ill-informed comments

Thanks for your kind comment.

You're clueless aren't you?

"research the situation" in order to "earn self respect". WTF does that actually mean?

Impy, your readership demographic is rapidly going down to the standard of Lenny the Loon's site or the Guardian's 'Comment is Debased'. You must be getting a canny few readers now then? Good on you.
