How stupid people must be to fall for that?
Marketing gimmick, money laundering, five minutes of media attention...shortly BS of the highest degree.
There is a sucker born every second, and some of them get into art...

I think a lot of the value in such so-called "art" comes down to flaunting money laundering and tax shelters.
On the one hand, the hundred-thousand-dollar banana duct-taped to a wall is Good. People always like to dismiss modern art as simplistic, often remarking, “I could make that.” The go-to comeback to this statement is, “Yeah, but you didn’t.” Hate all you want, but you didn’t just make a couple hundred grand by attaching maybe a dollar’s worth of produce to the wall with three pieces of tape from a roll that couldn’t possibly have cost more than 10 bucks. Maurizio Cattelan did.
