WPIX “Reports” On NYC’s “Graffiti Wars”

05.20.10 Bucky Turco


In what has to be one of the most ridiculous news stories ever filed, WPIX describes the recent vandalism of several Banksy pieces in NYC as a “war” between rival graffiti groups. But that wasn’t the only absurd reportage going on in this highly misinforming clip.

From their claim that Poster Boy, who they note is in jail, yet somehow warring with Banksy, to watching gallerist Hugo Martinez call SI a toy—please try and do that to his face—the entire piece is too ridiculous to even bother trying to dissect. Just watch and laugh.
