Banksy does Paris

Paris Sez: Banksy is hot...

From the BBC:

Hundreds of Paris Hilton albums have been tampered with in the latest stunt by “guerrilla artist” Banksy.

Banksy has replaced Hilton’s CD with his own remixes and given them titles such as Why am I Famous?, What Have I Done? and What Am I For?

He has also changed pictures of her on the CD sleeve to show the US socialite topless and with a dog’s head.

And…

His spokeswoman said he had tampered with the CDs in branches of HMV and Virgin as well as independent record stores.

He visited cities including Bristol, Brighton, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow and London, she added.

Genius.

One of those “why hasn’t someone done that before” type of things.

There will advertising and PR agencies kicking themselves all over the world.

If you are lucky enough to find of these, you are a Jammy Bastard of the highest order… but you might have some explaining to do as to why you were looking for Her Hiltoness’s album in the first place.

In fact, save yourself the embarrassment and send it to me. I’m not proud.

I can only imagine what one could go for on The Bay.

Update

Images of the work can be found here on Frederick’s Advertising/Design Goodness… as mentioned there’s a bit of flesh on show, so use caution in the work place.

I would love to have a copy of this… dammit.
