Cooler than Banksy.

September 3rd, 2006 · No Comments · Art, Rants

Noted “guerilla artist” Banksy’s latest stunt is making headlines.

As I read the article, I couldn’t help but think there was something… familiar about the whole affair. It’s probably the fact that, WAAAY back in 2001, my friends and I pulled essentially the same stunt - repeatedly. The only difference is that we didn’t actually tamper with merchandise and trick people into buying our prank copies (that, and we weren’t famous darlings of the “street art” world’s avante-garde).

FINALLY, I know what it’s like to be a full half-decade ahead of a cutting-edge, urban art movement.
