  1. The guy Harry that did this piece needs to get an electrical shock device that hits him whenever he uses a pun. I just picture him using puns every waking moment of his life and then it becomes a problem. Like having it destroy his ability to function in society, his wife and family abandon him, eventually going insane and dramatically ending it all right after saying some cheesy end of 80s epic action film type… you guessed it. Pun.

  2. OMG ‘ does that mean we are now going to be exposed to another round of banana Rama songs once this gets out 😱 for F…ks sake please no

  3. Y yo muriendo de hambre en la calle de hambre y soledad. Que asco de mundo… luego me uno al isis o alqaeda porque para vivir como a un puto perro abandonado… y el cambio climatico? Y greta thunberg? Menudo asco

  4. You fools. This is how money laundering works. Circulate dirty money in a seemingly legitimate way. $120k worth of dirty money.

  5. Someone ate the banana. They put up a new one shortly after. I would send videos but I can’t do that with a comment.

  6. Don't know which is worse, the artwork or the one who bought it. End times is real!

  7. This is not about money laundering. That is cursory, at best. This is what post modernism hath wrought upon the west.

  8. Modern art is primarily a money laundering scam.

  9. This is news? Who made this art piece? who bought it? Why did they buy it? Man im sleepy. I love news, im a news junkie!

  10. As much as I hate communism, gotta admit, every single bourgeoise involved in this belongs in a gulag.

  11. This is money laundering or this is the proof of ppl are stupid asf to buy "pieces of art" just cuz "x artist" made it.

  12. ive litrelly lost faith in humanity

  13. I would pay $120,000 to see someone eat that banana in 20 year's!😂

  14. So stuipd paid this amount. What dose he do.1.take it off wall. 2.tape to his wall.3. 7 days go by. 4. Its rotting. 5. Roches start coming to eat it.6. Stain on wall roches are done with it. 7. He knocks down wall because stains wont come off and it cost him 200,000 to replace wall. 8.they never got to eat it. 9. Wifey made cause their in dept.10. Family goes on welfare.hummm.

  15. Banana Beach is the true home of INFLUENCER art. =>

  16. Really!!? And meanwhile us real artist with real talent are just trying to keep the bills paid. And someone takes a freaking banana to a wall and it’s art?! I am a artist of twenty years and this is one of the most idiotic attempts I’ve ever seen.. I have painted 17 hours a day, ruined my knees painting murals, crawling on concrete for days.. staying up countless hours working in a studio everyday for years.. I sell allot of art but this? And someone seriously has the nerve to call this art? Excuse me why I puke and burn my paint brushes.. rant over

  17. My dream for so many years is to do a showcase at art Basel… this …. Lol if you can take a moment to view my art page and art store on etsy @asirenserenity

  18. This definitely stinks to high heaven,this is called self promotion at the least fraud at the worse,what I mean is this whatever person (not an artist) had someone buy this for him or he bought this crap himself,I am an artist and I am very offended someone could even attempt to say this is art,this is done all over even over night authors write a book or have one written for them and then they buy their own book in bulk so it looks like we the consumers are clamoring for this authors book,that is why you see a small dagger by the name on the NewYork times best seller list,right wing authors are guilty of this namely don trump jr.and his new book.This kind of underhanded fraud has got to stop so can we please get real no one in their right mind should even attempt to call this art or the creator an artist,this is just as bad as the jar of urine and feces.SMH So Slow.

  19. I wonder how much money a turd duct taped to the wall would make

  20. "This IS an insane world, and do NOT underestimate its level of insanity." Jesus Christ speaking through the Holy Spirit in "A COURSE IN MIRACLES." Want to know more? From the simple cure for cancer to the very Meaning of Life in this world? "Seek and ye shall find"……

  21. House … Maybe a car no wait a banana taped to a wall

  22. M O N E Y L A U N D E R I N G

  23. Who ever bought it, It did it for the memes.

  24. FAKE buy and sell, get a life!!!

  25. It's called "Money Laundering"

  26. How does someone so ignorant get Rich enough to waste 120k on a half rotten banana taped to the Wall??? You just publicly humiliated yourself in my opinion totally ignorant waste of that amount of money!
