If I was the buyer I would not pay. If I was gallery I would not pay seller either.

Just wait for it.
The value will go up.
So someone bought the shredded painting for the same price as the original sale.

Banksy's 'Girl with Balloon' sale is confirmed -- and it's got a new name

It's clear to me that Banksy thinks that all these art people are pathetic losers. He put the shredder in the frame of the painting years ago, knowing that some dope would buy it for a ridiculous amount, and then he'd publicly shame him.

Now, you'd think that people would realize that he hates all of those pompous art collectors. And then someone comes along and says "ooh, that's so cool, so Banksy, I must have it", and she buys the shreds. Crazy.

How about that.
It was such a unique gag, that I thought that there would be some people scrambling to buy it. I mean, it's got a publicized story now.

Before watching the video, which event will happen.

A) The boards going to break?
B) Going to slip and fall into the water?
C) Will successfully make it into the boat?
