It's a Banksy Documentary on Pranks!

Posted By on Mon, Aug 15, 2011 at 12:30 PM

I fall into the camp of really admiring artist/provocateur Banksy, especially after watching Exit Through the Gift Shop, so I'm obviously in the target audience for The Antics Roadshow, a documentary about pranksters varying from the political motivated to the simply bored which aired on England's Channel 4 this weekend, but I would imagine someone else would be amused by watching at least the first segment when someone attempts to re-create Mario Kart in the real world.

In typical Banksy form, he's somewhat dismissive of his own creation:

Explaining his reasoning behind the show, Banksy said: ‘Basically I just thought it was a good name for a TV programme and I’ve been working back from there’.

The first segment of four is above, the following three are below the cut (as long as they last on YouTube, at least).
