That's clever, and hilarious too.
That said, i wonder if the "remixed" cd are going to appear on Ebay and sell for tons of money. Since it's almost like a iimited edition piece of art now.

It is very good. From below one of the pics on the above referenced site:

"UPDATE: One of these is now for sale, by popular demand. I'm keeping the other for my own collection.

UPDATE: Warner is instructing eBay to pull these auctions (though some are still up, curiously). I have requested a fuller explanation from Warner Music as to how precisely this infringes their rights, and from eBay on why some auctions are still up and others not."

well, i am sure it infriges Paris Hilton copyrights.. you can't sell her images freely without her getting a part of the cake... PARI$ HILTON haha
Ebay is a big corporate company, don't expect anything smart from them.

The whole thing reminds me of some group (of artists?) who, a few years back, switched some electronic components between Barbie and GI JOE dolls and put them back in stores... So the GI JOE was saying barbie stuff and vice versa.

Mad

I really like Banksy' work... I'd heard about the Paris Hilton cds but this is the first time I've seen them and they are as amusing as I had thought they would be.. Banksy makes me smile yet again.. thanks for sharing the links lads..

..as JMA mentioned Britney.. I thought that I'd share a picture I found online not so long ago which made me chuckle...

the remixed music on the disc is by Danger Mouse (Beatles/Jay-Z; Gnarls Barkley). I have to wonder if he's just trying to get sued.
