Banksy's 'Director's Cut' of His $1.4M Art Getting Shredded at Auction

Today, the artist who created (and wrecked) it has released a video called "Shredding the Girl and Balloon - The Director's Cut".
Almost a fortnight after Banksy made headlines at Sotheby's in London with his spectacular self-destructing painting, the artist has posted a video titled Shredding the Girl and Balloon: The Director's Cut (check it out below) that provides far more detail on just how he managed to pull off the caper, which caught the art world by surprise.
"The Girls With the Balloon" self-destructed moments after an anonymous bidder offered a whopping $1.4 million to buy it at the Sotheby's auction held in London earlier this month.
The pic with a snapchat eye-emoji on it shows a man in a white scarf, wearing some kind of a wrist band or watch, hat and black glasses with some device on him allegedly in the same Sotheby's room where the shredding took place.
Banksy implied that the stunt went wrong in a new video posted to his website.

It shows the secretive artist installing a shredder in the ornate frame before it was put up for auction.
Part of the piece remained within the frame and was not destroyed. "In rehearsals it worked every time", a caption says as footage is shown of a copy of the artwork being shredded entirely.
Banksy previously claimed that preparations for the stunt were carried out "a few years ago" in case it was ever put up for auction.
After the prank, the piece was granted certification by Pest Control, Banksy's authentication body, and was given the new title Love Is In The Bin.
Seconds after the hammer fell at Sotheby's on 6 October the artwork started to shred itself.
The buyer has said they plan to keep the painting anyway and some have suggested the partially shredded version is actually worth more now than if it was intact because what really is art, anyway, if not a game of one-up trolling all for the purposes of profit?
