So let me get this right, he took off the cardboard sleeve and swapped the jewel cases. What did he do with the originals?

someone taking the stance to show this silly good for nothing slag up for what she is by her own medium perhaps?

making fun of Paris Hilton hardly takes any efford now does it, its been done a million times, its way too easy and his texts are quite pretentious.

he could just as easily have taken a picture of zidanes headbutt and added the text "You are fired" to achieve the same depth..

I must say I like some of his artwork more then this…

As much as I am gutted that I have missed out on one of these Paris mock-ups (was in the London HMVs on Sunday, only to return home in the afternoon and see the news), I reckon they would be easy to make a professional copy using a local print house.

In fact, I am tempted to fork out for one, and them cooperate with a local printer to make loads for ebay.

If not, I'm sure someone else will fake them and, because a pro copy will be exact to the Banksy one, their value will never be too great through no way of telling a fake from legit version.

Who knows if I am right, but if this doesn't happen after a while, I will sure be tempted.

this is so fucking pathetic how these are selling for like £300+ on ebay whilst brandishing 'thou shalt not worship false icons', your buying her publicity and theirs no such thing as bad publicity in her case. Did her porn video do her career harm? no it futhered it so why will this tarnish her image, your really building a more pronounced legacy.

That's hot!.

Thinking about this a bit more, there is no logical way these will ever be of high value.

Items become desirable, and hence expensive, when they cannot be replaced or reproduced (easily or at lesser cost). The video shows how the technology required to produce an exact version of this is easliy within the reach of most tech/media savvy people. Thus, with nothing that will distinguish a real Banksy cd from a professional copy, there is no extra value over a replica/copy. Nobody will be able to tell the difference, or even care for that matter.

Again, if this is not reproduced soon, I swear that I will do it.
