There's a post on the obey site that it is dropping May 10. I managed to grab one before it was taken down. I wonder if they will be refunding orders.

Very nice. I would think there will be another one in different colours down the line sold directly at Obey.

Every time that a tenner is offered, you come along and post the same thing.

Have the tenners hurt you?

I don’t understand wasting so much energy on something that is so insignificant. People who are interested in tenners usually tend to have a good idea of what’s what.

Carry on though. I know you will.
Was that justification at validating a money grab of pushing a faux Banksy being passed off as legitimate with the illusion of authenticity from a so called legit gallery?
LoL . Calling a business out for pushing a 'product' with no legitimacy from the artist, charging significant monies for some, is a waste of energy? People who are looking for anything banksy especially new comers are your target audience, and that is messed up.
Hope some music with facts might help clear the air :hanging:

I think you missed the entire point of the Tenner release. The goal of it was to separate the massive amount of fakes that are out there from the ones that were actually used by Banksy. Never once did anyone say they were going to be authenticated by Pest Control so your video and music that you always keep sharing doesn't really make much sense. Everything you're saying, we've said.

From years of collecting we knew what they were going for from trusted sources behind the scenes. Instead of possibly buying a fake, we took a chance and thought it would be a fun thing for people who were actually looking for them to purchase. Did I think they would be going for this much money? No but the market seems to be into it and it was a cool thing to be a part of. Plus, to bring something like that to people who follow us is pretty awesome. Glad many people got one.

^^^ agreed. Passing on the double tenner was a missed opportunity.

I'm so glad we're talking about Bottleneck's Banksy Tenners in the Anything Obey thread. I heard Tim Doyle is back you guys!

To be fair, the BNeck thread got taken over by Leftovers and Fargo talk.

Lol Joe there you go again pushing your faux Banksy release with your "army".
"ones that were actually used by Banksy
"

Oh brother. :facepalm:

You have to protect your investment and reputation...you remember that whole Pez(france) ordeal that you think no one knows about? It's ok Joe, keep on pushing it.

could you please take this to PM's? This is the Obey thread not gripe about Joe thread. I think you can see nobody gives a fudge about whatever it is you're trying to do here.
