We've covered some of the recent awesomeness from public artist and graffiti activist, Banksy, namely a childrens' mechanical ride featuring a dolphin jumping over a spilled barrel of BP oil (likely the same dolphin as pictured above) as well as an opening to The Simpsons that delved into a social commentary about mass consumerism and globalism. But while this collection of videos from a 2008 Banksy installation called The Village Pet Store and Barbecue isn't ripped straight from the headlines, it hasn't lost any of its meaning. Politics is not just campaigns, electioneering and voting every one, two or four years. It's also about symbols, framing, activism and even art. Enjoy! (Hat tip: KH; Photo: markhillary at flickr)
