For Your Consideration

BanksyLA
Mean Authority Figure, Tots, and lame crayon flowers

Banksy is in LA marking up surfaces with his signature lil’ rascals, menacing authorities, misplaced mutts, and drunk and disorderly mice. Many have speculated on Banksy’s mousetrap motives for visiting Hollywood — that he may be creating a Banksy egg-hunt in order to draw academy attention to his film, Exit Through the Gift Shop, which has been nominated for Best Documentary Feature.

Brash publicity tricks can only remind the academy, the press, and the chattersphere that the entire premise of the movie is mysterious and suspect, that the artist is a prankster who may will have created Exit Through the Gift Shop in order to establish an alter ego, Mr. Brainwash, for his blatant commercial endeavors.

The very first docuhoax ever to be nominated for an Oscar may well win just because the entire world is suspending disbelief.
