Is this too cliché or will buyers be amped about the Banksy references?

Very excited to see this in person. I wonder if Banksy will respond in any way. Overall pretty clever, neat image, great for anyone who is a fan of PEZ or Banksy. Also great for those who dislike Banksy since it can be interpreted as a criticism.

I think it is kinda funny PEZ tries to take a stab at B over $$$$ yet charges 225 for this dinky little print. Banksy has given stuff away for free in the past.

couldn't have said it any better. But I do like it how pez has gone out of his conventional style. If no one said so I would have never guessed it was a pez. Would have been nice if he did some hpm's on these.

I like a lot of his work but this is terrible and I'm not really a fan of any of his pop culture stuff either.

I, for one, think this is a fantastic piece! There may be a little satire involved, but I don't believe it as an outright slam or stab at Banksy. Maybe some of you are getting Uncle Scrooge mixed with Ebenezer Scrooge. Of course, Uncle Scrooge's namesake was derived from Ebenezer, but both are very different characters. Uncle Scrooge from Duck Tails was actually looked at as thrifty, charitable and always trying to make money the right way instead of cheating others. In fact I believe the character even made a point that money isn't everything.

All that a side, I believe this is a very crafty and clever work by PEZ. For those that love graffiti art this hits on all cylinders.
