$1.4 Million Painting Self-Destructs After Auction

When street artist Banksy painted "Girl With Balloon" and gave it away, he was worried that someone would attempt to sell it.

This weekend after it was sold at a Sotheby's auction, it started beeping and shredded itself inside the frame. A disguised Bansksy posted a video showing how he made the frame.

But since this was done several years ago and any batteries wouldn't have lasted this long many people think that there was a conspiracy to make this happen and that someone inside the event triggered the destruction.

Experts are saying the painting might be up to 50% more valuable now after this event.
