A piece of Banksy's work sells for $1.4M, and then it self-destructed.

Got to admit, that's pretty rock and roll.

I'm kind of questioning the veracity of this story now. Not as told by the press, but this is starting to seem... too incredible? Saw the video dude put out showing his making of the frame. No one at the auction house had a flag go up on the frame when they gave the print the rectal exam for authenticity?

Not saying I absolutely think he colluded with someone on the inside, but now kind of questioning the veracity of the story as it's being presented.

The people in that video were clearly not in on it.

You have to assume someone was though. I mean, wouldn't that be a crime?

That's what I said. Technically, that was all made by the original artist, so, isn't it still art? Couldn't you still hang that as it was all created by him?

I suppose those points are true.

If anyone there was in on it, they did a great job acting.

I think jamming halfway worked out a ton more.

It makes the art itself more of a legit piece, and is still in one piece. It also probably raised its value.

Also, if he had really wanted to destroy it, cross-cut ftw.
