We didn't attend any of Paris Hilton's multiple launch "parties" for her new album, and then we forced Intern Neel to witness her seated in the ample lap of Mario Lavandeira. However, all is not so cushy for Paris abroad. International graffitist and prankster Banksy punk'd various HMV, Virgin, and other UK record stores by replacing hundreds of copies of Paris's album with his own remixes. Self-important prank video and moderately amusing track sample here, though you can more quickly digest the joke via the remix album art.
