Personally, I could care less about celebrities. Paris Hilton doesn’t deserve three second’s of someones cognitive energy, be it positive or negative. But one of my favorite pranksters and street artists has struck again!
500 doctored versions of Paris Hilton’s new CD have been placed in stores around the UK. The CD contain Banksy’s remixes and have titles like “Why am I Famous?,” “What Have I Done?” and “What Am I For?” Banksy also doctored the CD cover to show Paris topless and with a dog’s head leaving the original barcode on the CDs in 48 UK stores.
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.
A spokesman for HMV said the chain had recovered seven CDs from two Brighton shops but was unaware that other locations were affected…
A spokesman for Virgin Megastores said staff were searching for affected CDs but it was proving hard to find them all.
“I have to take my hat off – it’s a very good stunt,” he added.
