    Fucking legend. A troll for the history books! Banksy never disappoints. Genius. I can't take it.

    This is an artist's work come to complete fruition of it's original inception.

    This is retarded. The painting sucks and anyone that bid that much is also retarded. Also the artist should be charged with destruction of property as the gentleman clearly bought the painting before he "decided" to shred it. LOCK HIM UP!

    I think now that half shredded art piece is priceless, at least doubled. Good investment.

    What's wrong with people, spending that kind of money for a mediocre work? There are tons of much more talented artists. I know that buying junk like that can be used to launder money, but at least, if you're laundering money, support talent!

    Genius. Love the idea of a self destructing artwork.

    I researched this. It had a modified clapper in it . Instead of it listening for hands clapping it listens for the sound of a gavel hitting the table.

    I'm amazed by how that mechanism still worked after so many years (even if perhaps it eventually got stuck)....But the funniest thing of this is that the buyer now has a unique and much more valuable "work of art" (???). ... 3:)

    Why is the paper bright white in the frame, but dull white or brownish when it comes through the shredder? i.e, the intact part in the frame and the shredded part outside the frame look like different pieces of paper. (Not saying they are, but it looks strange.)

    Why would someone so this. Is there a reason did this?

    What battery did you use and how many years ago and it didn't lost it's charge? I guess you activated it by remote control, but the receiver consumes too much energy not to drain the battery after weeks, not years. If you managed to do that , you are not an artist , you are the new Tesla and you will get a Nobel price for solving the biggest problem of batteries.

    Ironically since this is Art the painting should be worth more now, I would definitely buy that painting after, since it has been everywhere on the internet and on the news!#troll #backfired

    it is a bullshit fake story..... any dumb ass art curator knows a picture isn't one foot thick and 25 pounds heavy.. FAKE AS F. totally produced video with actors. GAY. CNN is using this same exact film clip.. from where? who filmed it and knew to keep the camera on it? Who the fuck is going to accept a piece of art without examining it before placing it for auction. FAKE OR DID BANKSY CASH IN AND SOLD THIS PIECE TO THE CURATOR AND THEY WELL KNEW WHAT TO EXPECT.
