Paris Hilton’s CDs get Banksy-ed
His spokesperson told BBC News that Banksy has replaced the CDs with his own remixes entitled ‘Why am I Famous?’, ‘What Have I Done?’ and ‘What Am I For?’
He also altered the pictures of her on the album cover to show her topless and with a dog’s head - but left the CDs barcodes intacted so that people could buy the CD without realising.
The spokesperson confirmed that Banksy had travelled around the UK with his CDs, visiting chain and independent records stores in Bristol, Brighton, Birmingham, Newcastle, Glasgow and London.
A spokesperson for HMV said seven doctored CDs had been recovered from their Brighton branch but no one, either there or elsewhere, had complained.
A Virgin spokesperson said staff were on the look out for the CDs at their stores then added “I have to take my hat off - it’s a very good stunt.”
