In case you haven’t heard, British artist Banksy pulled off one of the most shocking pranks ever when he self-destructed his ‘Girl with Balloon’ artwork after it sold for $1.4 million at an auction in London.

Surprisingly, the buyer opted to keep the now re-titled ‘Love In A Bin’ painting, after realizing that he could ‘end up with (his) own piece of art history.’

Probably as a way to squash rumors that the stunt wasn’t legit, Banksy has released a BTS footage which shows the installation of the built-in shredder frame, his pre-event dry run of the prank, and how it was triggered at the auction.
