Banksy Artwork Self-Destructs

After Being Sold for $1.4 Million USD the Banksy art piece begins to shred itself.

“A rare Banksy artwork, Girl With a Balloon (2006), self-destructed moments after it was sold for a record-setting bid of $1.4 million USD at Sotheby’s in New York City.

Immediately after the sale, the artwork set off an alarm and its canvas slipped through a shredder built inside the faux-gilt frame, essentially “destroying” itself. After videos were taken, staff rushed the piece out of the room. A man dressed in black wearing sunglasses and a hat was then seen scuffling with security guards near the entrance, causing onlookers to wonder if Banksy himself was actually inside the auction room.”
