Steal A Banksy! Legally!

by admin on December 8, 2011

Yup, you read that right! The Art Series Hotel group, based in Australia, is hiding the Banksy print 'No Ball Games' print they bought for $15,000 somewhere in one of their hotels and are inviting guests to try and steal it!

If you manage to get the print out of the hotel they will let you keep it and you won't get arrested! If you get caught they just hand it back up, and you still don't get arrested! Now this sounds like a great bit of fun!

Obviously this is all part of a wider marketing campaign to get more guests through the doors in what is a quiet period for them but i love the idea.

So what's the catch? Well, all you have to do is stay at the hotel between the 15th December and the 15th January. You can't just turn up off the street you do have to be a guest and the only downside will be that it could be in any of the hotels. You would have to stay in one for the full 4 weeks to guarantee it coming to the one you are staying in!

Anyway i love the idea! What do you think? How would you sneak a Banksy print past security without getting caught?
