Banksy “Better Out Than In” Day 25 – ‘Reaper’

Following yesterday’s Hell’s Kitchen exhibit, Banksy has unveiled the 25th piece in his month-long “Better Out Than In” exhibition. Today’s piece is in the form of a YouTube video titled “Reaper” and is said to be located in or near Bowery, a street and neighborhood in the southern portion of Manhattan. The video features a reaper in a bumper car and is set to Blue Öyster Cult’s 1976 record “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper.” According to Wikipedia, the lyrics deal with eternal love and the inevitability of death.
