Prankster messes with Paris Hilton CDs

paris hiltonBritish jokester Banksy tampered with hundreds of copies of Paris Hilton's new CD, much to my amusement. He changed the cover art to a topless picture of Paris, but replaced her head with the head of a dog. There's also a sticker advertising the album's hits, including "Why Am I Famous?", "What Have I Done?" and "What Am I For?" He also replaced her CD with one that has 40 minutes of some dance mix by a DJ named 'DM'.

In case you're like me and didn't know who Banksy was but suddenly have respect for him... his real name is Robert Banks and he's a British graffiti/stencil artist whose messages appear throughout London and the world. His stencils on walls, sidewalks, etc. carry political messages. Some notable stencils include him sneaking into the London Zoo in the penguin habitat and painting 'We're bored of fish' on the wall, and he snuck his own art in New York's MOMA, MET, Brooklyn Museum and Museum of Natural History.

She has hot dance track [Turn It Up] on that CD...even if she does say "That's Hot" at the beginning of it.

...of course I didn't buy it!

The unknown DJ is Danger Mouse from Gnarls Barkley. This is according to a blog post on Gnarls Barkley's MySpace page. :)
