Banksy Danger mouse Paris Hilton Cd Very Rare
A very very rare and sought after Banksy work.
Back in 2006 Paris Hilton, apparently not satisfied with being a television and American socialite, decided that she should be a music star too. She gathered some well-known songwriters and music producers to help her make a CD.
Banksy and DJ Danger Mouse got wind of the project and decided to play a trick on a series of HMV record stores throughout the United Kingdom by placing 500 copies of a CD-rom with music by DJ Danger Mouse in a jewel case with cover art taken from Paris Hilton‘s original CD but with her portrait on the front rendered “topless” and Banksy quotes placed over the pictures on the inside of the booklet. Banksy and his assistants managed to get these spoof CDs onto HMV’s shelves beside the real CDs so that customers buying the album would, by mistake, take the “wrong” version and find DJ Danger Mouse‘s music rather than Paris Hilton‘s. I suspect that many who made this mistake returned to HMV to exchange their “defect” CD for the real thing or to get a refund. No one knows exactly how many of the 500 CDs placed in the HMV stores still exist.
The second edition of 1000 CDs with similar artwork was produced in 2008 with the sticker that was on the outside of the Jewel case on the first 500 copies now smaller and printed at top right on the front of the booklet.
For this edition the CD was a proper mastered CD with printed design rather than the CD-rom with “Paris” written on the front that had been included in the HMV version.
Happy to answer any questions.
