Watch video of Banksy 'Girl with a balloon' being shredded after selling for $1 million+

Banksy has the last laugh.
  • Sotheby's Auction gavel comes down on "Girl with a Balloon" after it sells for over $1 million
  • An alarm goes off inside frame - also made by Banksy
  • The painting starts to drop down and comes out shredded into strips!
Banksy posted on Instagram....

and you can watch on the VIDEO made by Pierre Koukjian and also shared on Instagram

The incident has gone viral this morning.

Oddly the Sotheby's Twitter feed is silent!

Elsewhere accounts of what happened can be found as follows

Going, going gone.... but did Banksy get the last laugh?

Oddly enough, I think that since this is a unique event - and a first - that it will go down in art history and the value of the now destroyed artwork is probably a lot more than the buyer paid for it!
