British street artist Banksy shocked the world when he pulled off one of the most elaborate and spectacular pranks on Friday night.

Banksy’s iconic painting “Girl With Balloon” shows a girl reaching out to a red heart-shaped balloon. It was up for auction at Sotheby’s Auction House in London this weekend when within seconds of being sold for a record-breaking £1,042,000, the painting was shredded into ribbons.

Alex Branczik, Sotheby’s senior director and head of contemporary art, Europe London, said: “It appears we just got Banksy-ed.”

Here are some hilarious tweets following this stunt:
