After posting a video yesterday that wasn't very kid-friendly, Banksy has toned it down a little today with a stencil on the Upper West Side of a boy swinging a high-striker (or "test your strength") game mallet at a standpipe with a fire alarm system attached to it that resembles the popular carnival activity. According to Gothamist, a guy in a hoodie alleged tried to deface the piece but was tackled by someone nearby. Tempers began to flare as other onlookers began to take sides. Check out the video below:
