Banksy hits Disneyland

September 13, 2006

Prolific UK graffiti artist Banksy switched gears this week, following up on his cheeky hack of Paris Hilton’s CD launch with a disturbing attack on that bulwark of all things wholesome and good, Disneyland. Somehow, Bansky managed to get into the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad Ride with a life-size figurine of a Guantanamo Bay detainee. The figurine was positioned behind a fence so as to appear imprisoned to passers-by. According to the BBC, the figurine stood for about 90 minutes before the ride was shut down.

Flickr user madeofchalk has a banksy photoset with a couple shots from the installation. Also, if you’re going to be in LA between September 15th and 17th, keep an eye on Banksy’s site for the location of a secret “three day vandalized warehouse extravaganza.”
