Well that escalated fast. In mere minutes after posting his final Better Out Than In piece, a group of opportunists attempted to steal the Banksy Bubble Font balloons residing in Queens off the Long Island Expressway. Newsflash: It didn't end well for these two guys. See what happens when two opportunists meet the ire of Banksy's biggest fans.
Instagram footage of balloon thieves getting taken down by Banksy fanboys and the NYC police. Epic ending to an epic monthlong stint on the streets of New York City. Footage of the balloon thieves in action
UPDATE: 1:30PM, The Banksy Bubble Balloon is now in police custody. Maybe they'll dust it for fingerprints.

The perfect tribute in memory of all those who perished during the course of Breaking bad. Respect to Grantland for giving us a look back at the body count throughout the show.
Well that didn't take long for Banksy's new street art in Chinatown to get removed. Unfortunately by way of buff, and what's left isn't pretty. Guess someone in NYC is desperate to steal Banksy's thunder. Sad, but the nature of the street game. Atleast someone got the "Graffiti is a crime" signage instead of his first new work being totally ruined. Probably expect to see that sign on ebay some point soon. Image via neilfakrull
