We’ve already talked about Banksy this week on the Viral Video of the Day and how he’s taken to the streets of New York for the month of October with his “Better In Than Out” residency.

There’s been some pretty dope pieces he’s put up around town, but to be fair, we should look at the other side of it as well.

A lot of people are upset because there are so many crowds of people who are clogging up local neighborhoods and streets to get a glimpse of the famous artist’s work.

Some local New York graffiti artists have been tagging over his work, which upset people, but that’s just the culture of street graffiti and some of its battles.

One group who we’ve featured as well, called TrustoCorp, is notorious for putting up parody street signs and they are back at it again.

They were quoted as saying, “We love Banksy and love seeing his work go up in our hometown, but we can’t help but notice the irony of a multimillionaire doing rebellious street art. But hey, this is America and maybe we can be millionaire rebels one day too!”

Funny stuff…check it out for today’s Viral Video of the Day and also take a look at their first piece we featured about hip hop lyrics. It’s pretty good.

Can’t wait until tomorrow for another dose of viral videos? Catch up on Surfer Stephen’s previous picks below:
