Up for sale is a rare Banksy - Dangermouse Paris Hilton CD (2nd pressing)
Back in 2006 the American socialite Paris Hilton, decided that she should be a music star too. Besides being a popular television star and American socialite. She gathered some well-known songwriters and music producers to help her make a CD.
Banksy and DJ Danger Mouse decided to play a trick on a series of HMV record stores throughout the UK by placing 500 copies of a CD-rom with music by DJ Danger Mouse in a jewel case with cover art taken from Paris Hilton‘s original CD. Banksy managed to get these spoof CDs onto HMV’s shelves beside the real CDs so that customers buying the album would, by mistake, buy the “wrong” version and find DJ Danger Mouse‘s music rather than Paris Hilton‘s. No one knows exactly how many of the 500 CDs placed in the HMV stores still exist.
The 2nd pressing of 1000 CDs with similar artwork was produced in 2008 with the sticker that was on the outside of the Jewel case on the first 500 copies now smaller and printed at top right on the front of the booklet. For this edition the CD was a proper mastered CD with printed design rather than the CD-rom with “Paris” written on the front that had been included in the HMV version. CD has serial number: 9362-44138-2 and Banksy001 on the CD ring hub. CD case measures appr. 14, 5 cm x 14,5 cm. The condition of this lot is very good. Will pack securely and dispatch via recorded delivery service.
