Am I the only one who smells a prank? This really does have all the ingredients of a Banksy prank. Vote this way, take a pic and we'll send you a print. The sheer volume of emails they'll receive would take a year to sift through. There could be hundreds of thousands of emails.

They'll probably end up just sending people t-shirts instead.

I think the act of offering his highly sought after art to people for free in order to swing elections in multiple places IS the prank.

I def. think it's a stunt too. Maybe to make people talk about the voting, and maybe try to get some out and vote instead of staying home.

Someone on UAA stated that the 6 areas has around 455.000 people that can vote. That's a lot of logistic

Limited edition of 100,000 is still limited.
