If this isn’t a Banksy move we don’t know what is.
Girl With Red Balloon, an original Bamksy art piece had just been sold at Sotheby’s Auction House for £860,000 ($1.12M US) when suddenly it began to drop down through its frame which concealed a shredder and sliced the piece into strips.
Even funnier is that It’s unclear whether the auction house will provide a refund for the artwork, or if it has in fact gone up in value.

Immediately after the gavel drops and this Banksy is sold for ~$1 million, a remotely activated shredder concealed inside the frame reduces the artwork into to ribbons. Absolutely brilliant. https://t.co/lpRcSzoISi
