It's A Wonderful World Certificate of Authenticity that came with the Britney/Madonna print. Yes I did buy it. :oops: It was a pivotal moment in earth's history, so it was a must have. :wink: I have sent the thumb print to the FBI for analysis.

I'm not really sure about anything. I just know that the dude in the video is not this portly little fella that calls himself MBW . :D

If you figure it out then let me know because maybe it will help me figure out why I dislike him. It is something other than just not being a fan of most of his work.

No way that person in the video was "Mr. Brainwash". Looked like some kid doing his job much like all the differentiation in the art under the Mr. Brainwash brand. The guy was pasting what he was told to. I have a couple MBW prints and they are obviously from different artists and he signs his name to complete the brand and authenticity. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that it's a sham, but also art, because it's re-inventing how it's distributed and created with branding. He hires artists (probably off craigslist as some articles have suggested) and then signs the works. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
