Cool Videos: Graffiti artist Banksy kills a Disney icon in this odd video piece

10.07.2013

Although this is under the "Cool Videos" section, I'm not sure it qualifies that niche perfectly. As an art piece it does, but I can easily see this ruffling some feathers and I think that's the point. Anyone aware of Banksy, the enigmatic graffiti artist well known for his artistic "statements" around the world, will know that this is hardly controversial when it comes to his work. It's the first time we've seen a video piece by the artist, which he posted with the words "I’m not posting any pictures today. Not after this shocking footage has emerged…"

Operation Dumbo Drop?:

Banksy is currently undertaking an artist’s residency in New York that is said to last until the end of the month, so I'm sure there will be plenty of odd, ironic, and "thoughtful" pieces popping up within that time frame.

What do you think? Is this controversial or just more of Banksy's odd style?

Is it just me or does Denis Leary look like Christian Slater in that poster?

Wow

This completely explains how I feel about America's relation with foreign countries and how we are letting corporations' interests take over. I totally get it, and it's so deep....but I would have laughed harder if the kid kicked him in the balls instead of the shin...

I hated that movie

Seems like they would always play that in Middle School when we had a sub.

Banksy is a master at brand creation. He's like Apple or Starbucks. He's aware of this and spoofed it in Exit Through the Gift Shop. This video would be nothing more than a common online gag if it wasn't for the Banksy brand.

Lmfao!!... Funniest shit ever!... "Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!".... What makes it so funny, is they're so happy they brought his fat ass down from the sky.

I was 'meh' until the kid kicked the rocketeer at the end. That was hilarious.

I'm not surprised Banksy is in NYC right now. The British police arrested him for his graffiti activities. It's a shame: I really like his work.
