Watch Banksy's $1.4 million painting 'self-destruct'
One of Banksy's works, Balloon Girl, was sold in an auction at Sotheby's in London for £1.04m. However, very shortly after the gavel dropped and it was sold, an alarm sounded inside of the picture frame and the canvas passed through a shredder hidden within the frame, partially shredding the picture.
