StealBanksy

December 7th, 2011 | By | 3 Comments »

So now that i am back from Miami and not working 14 hour days, I am back to posting on here. This pr stunt from Art Series Hotels in Australia came in to my inbox and I found it amusing enough to post, despite its blatant ploy to entice guests to the hotel. From 15 December to 15 January hotel guests at The Cullen, The Olsen and The Blackman down under will have the opportunity to steal a Banksy print, No Ball Games. If you manage to successfully steal it while on show at one of the three hotels during the month then it is yours to own. Anyone have any good ideas for this? I’m thinking someone should pull the fire alarm or flash a security guard.

    AHH I have the perfect idea on how to do it. Kinda tempting to invest in the $$$ to fly out and get a hotel room.

    That’s either the best or worst marketing idea I’ve ever heard. Can’t wait to get the follow up.

    I want to hate this idea. Hell, I don’t even really like this particular print. But I really want to stay at this hotel and try to steal the thing!
