The best course of action would be for people to get refunds from PayPal and since BNE supposedly donated the money, leave him with bill.

@buckyturco That is exactly what we are STRONGLY encouraging, refunds. Everyone is welcome to one. Refunded tees will be sold early next week, as The Collaborative T-shirt 2. Time and date to be announced. The Collaborative T-Shirt 2 will be branded with the same artwork as the first, but with a unique tag for authenticity. Time and date to be announced. Price has increased to $320. Good luck.

Is this real life???

I'm also enjoying Animal NY's reasoning for not posting about the PC denial earlier...they've replied to people on twitter and IG making that point by saying they couldn't post anything until after bne pulled the scam or they would have looked crazy.

Um no dude, you would have looked like you had a legit email from PC denying an upcoming Banksy sale was legit.

Then in another IG comment Animal says the brilliance of the scam is that bne got legit artists to do work so it made the Banksy sale seem legit and "not one blog thought to confirm it"

Um no again dude, you confirming it with PC. On Friday. And you didn't post about it.

The drymount is going on? drymount, I'm letting this fudge ride. Pretty much just threw $200 on roulette.

@bnedotorg were 500 tees sold in total or 500 of each colour?

I've received order confirmation. This fudge storm alone is worth the money.

I still doubt that only 500 total were sold?

Lets get a count.

Agreed. They were up for a full hour and a half. No way only 500 sold.

Well I bought one right at 2 and got a confirmation. Then I bought another around 2:30ish (clearly when they were sold out) just in case they oversold and did some OBEY fudge and cancelled orders in a weird way. That way I had two chances to get one. Anyways, I've only gotten confirmation on the first and nothing saying refunded on the second.

Im sitting down in my armchair to watch this play out.

We're all bit-part actors in this charade thats unfolding in front of us and I'm happy to choose my role as the guy sipping coffee way in the distance whilst some of you run around squawking trying to be the lead before getting your brains blown out by the bad guys.
