Banksy did this in case the eventuality arose that the painting was put up for sale on auction.
A few years back he published an image on his website mocking an auction house and their clients for bidding for the framed words "I can't believe you morons actually buy this sh*t".
The video later shows scenes from Sotheby's, where onlookers are left aghast as an alarm sounds and most of the image drops down through the frame and is left shredded. The artist also posted the Picasso quote - "The urge to destroy is also a creative urge".
"We've been Banksy-ed", he added.
The art world is in still in a frenzy over the shocking prank pulled by mysterious artist, Banksy at an auction held in the prestigious Sotheby's on Friday 5 October 2018.
That makes it part of world art history, according to Mr Syer, which will increase its appeal.
It happened at Sotheby's in London, when the Banksy work was the last to be bid on, and eventually sold, for a grand total price of $1.1 million.
And the photos of the man - wearing a cap and sunglasses - were taken before Banksy had even claimed the art as his own.
Sotheby's said the buyer of the 2006 work "Balloon Girl", identified only as "a female European collector and a long-standing client of Sotheby's", had chose to continue with the purchase at the original price.
Orange County-based artist Jeff Gillette, whose 2010 "Dismayland" works portraying a slum surrounding the theme park were included in Banksy's similarly titled project, calls Banksy's newest prank 'brilliant'.
As the original incident involving the Banksy painting garnered attention worldwide, many experts and an auction agency warned owners not to try anything similar.
For an artist who's known for his stunts, this could be Banksy's most ideal art world prank. The buyer has no longer a print, one of many, of the "Girl with Balloon" but a unique Banksy performance piece.
