By now, most likely you’ve already seen the trailer for the new Banksy movie. So after doing some research on what “everybody” was saying, this is my take on what I could understand about the new Banksy film “Exit through the gift shop”.
Although these are just my thoughts, read out and tell me if I’m just paranoid.
Is it really Banksy?
Banksy has already putted up a new picture for his website, so it’s definitely a Banksy piece.
And it’s gonna be featured in Sundance Festival?
Indeed, has it’s confirmed on Hollywood Reporter:
Hollywood Reporter added:
So what’s all the hype about?
Well, it’s Banksy…
Hey, I think I just saw Banksys face on the trailer!!1
In the trailer, you get to see Mr. Brainwash a.k.a MBW. So who is Mr. Brainwash?
Well here’s a little info:
And how exactly did he got known?
It was the introduction to Banksy that helped MBW make the transition from a voyeur of street art into a participant.”
Ok! But Is he any good anyway?
Yeah, you wouldn’t pay it, but I’m pretty sure by now that someone already has.
Something doesn’t smell right…
MBW being a real person, doesn’t mean he’s not part of the Banksy prank. Both statements can be true.
Which leaves us to this:
Oh no? This video can prove different, ahah!
@3:45 this is what goes on:
7000 PEOPLE?!? Banksy plays a prank on all of us, turning Mr. Brainwash from an unknown regular dude into a superstar street-artist known worldwide.
The talk between Banksy and Mr. Brainwash must have been something like this:
“Does it matter if you’re a real artist or not? With the right PR’s, you’ll be doing Madonnas cover next month when I’m trough with you… Just watch me.”
Which he actually did for Madonnas “Celebration” album, ahah.
I mean, even the name “Brainwash” makes me think I might be right. That everybody just got brainwashed by Banksy…
Anyway, CLAP CLAP to Banksy and whatever it comes out of here.
UPDATE: Check Nuart and AnimalNewYork for Shepard Fairey speak in late 2008.
It sure hell sounds like one of those banksy pranks. It was the first thing that crossed my mind, but I did not dig into it. Thanks for all the details on it.
brutal! adorei a teoria!
MBW is not a prank, he is the creator of the McRib. That is how he has the financial ability to put on large scale art shows.
I love how Exit Through the Gift Shop exposed MBW, he’s not genuine at all but still a nice enough dude:)
