I have a friend (who would be a great asset to 419eater - I'm trying to persuade him to join) who takes pleasure in making prank phone calls to BBC Radio 2's Jeremy Vine Show. In the last eight years or so, he has appeared around two dozen times, both on the phone and then subsequently invited in to the studio for a follow-up interview on his original stories.

Hilariously though, an artist called Mike Ballard heard one of these prank calls and apparently failed to realise that it was a hoax and stole the whole premise for an art exhibition/installation in London last month.

The original Jeremy Vine Show appearances are here:

The interviews Mike Ballard gave before the exhibition opened, together with the Press Release he put out, used great chunks of my friend's script absolutely verbatim, so any defence of "coincidence" can be firmly rejected!

I would love to hear this guy bait lads instead of BBC Radio presenters...

Wow - so a pretentious 'artist' (and I use the term in it's loosest sense) has stolen the idea to steal a load of coats. What a twat.
