    Do that to the Da Vinci that just recently sold for $500 million… See if the price goes up. Just stroll into a museum and start shredding their art… Tell them you’re making them worth more.

    You know you’re rich when you pay $1.4M for a torn-up painting instead of giving me a scholarship that could pay off my student loans, student debt, and the rest of my college, and still have enough to pay others’ tuition as well.

      Its not. Rich people buy it for a lot just to say its worth a lot, and then sell it for a lot because it sold for a lot.

      +Zeus Gaming amazing job? Kids do this in elementary school and guess what? …you don’t know them either, nut job

      We don’t know the guy probably because he is some pedophile 1% that is creating something more than just a girl and balloon but a creepy message

    • Llama Cebu says:

      +zombiekush760 she is chasing her heart

      Aka child trafficking

      Conspiracy of silence boys and girls. Watch it before they permanently remove it

    • Bassmint says:

      +Llama Cebu have you not seen some of his other stuff? Certainly not something kids in elementary school could do, this girl with balloon one is probably his simplest.
