Trivia
Banksy's former spokesman Steve Lazarides on whether or not the film is a spoof: "I think the joke is on... I don't know who the joke is on, really. I don't even know if there is a joke".

The New York Times movie reviewer Jeannette Catsoulis coined a new term for this kind of film: prankumentary.

The film had its unofficial UK premiere in an abandoned rail tunnel underneath London's Waterloo station, an area devoted to graffiti and street art. Tickets for this sold out in a minute. A red carpet was spraypainted on the ground especially for the occasion, while spectators were all presented with tins of spray paint as they left the screening.

Quotes
Banksy: Uhmmm... You know... it was at that point that I realized that maybe Thierry wasn't actually a film maker, and he was maybe just someone with mental problems who happened to have a camera.

Banksy: Warhol repeated iconic images until they became meaningless, but there was still something iconic about them. Thierry really makes them meaningless.
