Guerrilla Monsoon

So we know that one of these days, if you got the fame and money, you can become singer -- not by singing per se but by making CDs with very nice covers and put them in the store for the "best-buy" price. And this is a global phenomenon: it happens every other day in Hong Kong, and, unfortunately, it happens in N. America (or, the U.S. and UK charts) as well. Yeah you know who, it's Paris! And she can't sing for SHXT! Oh wait... she doesn't actually sing on the album. But moaning words like 'i'm so sexy' to a could-be top 40 club beats occasionally. And worst of all, I can't even hear what she speaks. Yeah the fact that it's happening really sucks. We all hate it. But have you ever thought of doing something about it, other than not buying it? Well, someone did. This artist in UK called Banksy "bombed' some of the stores by replacing Paris' album with his own homemade spoof. Check out the link here with a video documenting how he did it. This guy is guerrilla. And no wonder why they say artists keep activism alive. Props up!
