Banksy pulled off yet another prank on the people of New York yesterday. He set up an art stall in Central Park with hundreds of thousands of dollars-worth of signed art, selling for only $60 a canvas. You'd think they'd sell out in minutes. And you'd be wrong. Over a period of 7 hours just three people bought a total of 8 canvases, one of whom managed to haggled the price down 50%! Total haul for the day: $480. We humans really don't trust one another do we? That said, the people who did buy some canvases, holy shit you are gonna love this.
A big THANK YOU to @cederdog for the link. Unbelievable.
