If you remember, Banksy just won the 2014 Webby for Person of the Year, basically because for one month in NYC, he took over the Internet with his brand of social media and street art in "Better Out Than In". We even got flak for calling it an Internet project. Well, we like to thank the Webby Awards for confirming our editorial. Now, Banksy just released a trailer for "Better Out Than In—The Movie," which could just be his acceptance video for the Webby Award, or an upcoming movie. Anyway, its on the Internet.
