Banksy's TV special on public pranksters lands online

October 6, 2011 |  3:15 pm


Banksy, the elusive British street artist, directed a TV special about public pranksters that aired earlier this year on Britain's Channel Four. "The Antics Roadshow" profiled a series of infamous stunt-meisters including Michael Fagan, who once broke into Queen Elizabeth II's bedroom, and Noel Godin, who has thrown pies at Bill Gates and France's Nicolas Sarkozy.

"The Antics Roadshow" aired in Britain in August, but no air dates were announced for the U.S. In the spirit of Banksian anarchy, the TV special has found its way online, where you can view it in its entirety. The show is narrated by actress Kathy Burke and is produced by Jaimie D'Cruz, who also produced Banksy's Oscar-nominated documentary "Exit Through the Gift Shop."

You can watch "The Antics Roadshow" here, or in the embedded video after the jump.
