Paris Hilton & Danger Mouse 2nd pressing

The CD has the all important 'BANKSY001' CD ID code on the bottom side of the CD near the centre hole as pictured. This would have been added during the manufacturing of the CD and is found on genuine examples of Banksy's CD. Banksy and his team replaced a number of Paris Hilton's CDs with these versions in HMV stores around the country. The initial run was of 500 CDs followed by a second run of 1000. This is from the second run.

Each page carries an insubordinate comment such as "Every CD you buy puts me even further out of your league" and "Thou shalt not worship false icons". The music is replaced with a Danger Mouse version. The musician of Gnarls Barkley fame cuts in Hilton's well used catch phrase "that's hot". The music was remixed by Banksy and Danger Mouse, and contains tracks with titles such as "Why Am I Famous?," What Have I Done?", and "What Am I For?".

The one for sale in this advert is the second edition of 1000 CDs with similar artwork, but with the sticker that was on the outside of the Jewel case on the first 500 copies, now smaller and printed at top right on the front of the booklet. For this edition the CD was a proper mastered CD with printed design rather than the CD-rom with “Paris” written on the front that had been included in the HMV version.

Danger Mouse: Producer Brian Burton, better known as Danger Mouse, arrived in London in 2001 from Athens, Georgia and soon after began working with Lex on a series of releases that came to define the sound of the label in it’s early years.
