Why are "Bansky" and "Obey" listed in the title of the ebay listing? Am I missing something?

There is some speculation that the MBW show was just an elaborate stunt, though if I had spent thousands of dollars on a 'stunt' I'd be looking to break this guy's other foot:

You don't know much about Star Wars collecting do you, it'll get way more attention then 5 visits!

Sorry folks! These links should be publically viewable:

http://www.neublack.com/features/featur ... brainwash/

Finally, this exchange was posted by a couple of members:
M1:I heard this was bankrolled and conceived by Banksy. If so, it could prove to be a classic piece of conceptual street art trickery.

Anyone heard the same ?

M2: Yes and yes.

I have heard that it's kind of a stunt.

Rumours that some of the work, if not all, could have actually been painted by some seriously big names, Banksy included.

Also heard that the whole thing may have been a stunt, as it's the final scene for the film. Kinda showing how easy street art is to sell to A-Listers, who know nothing about the scene and are just fashion followers. The last laugh being on the punters that bought.

Saying that, that's the reason i did buy a piece, because knowing that in advance, whether true or not, made me feel that i was buying a piece of history of this scene. Plus i thought that if it was true, it's a pretty cool stunt to be part of.

I thought that Nick Walker was Banksy. Or one half of Miss Bugs.
