A UK artist used Disneyland for his prank.

Click on Disneyland.

It seems one person was there when it happened and gives his point of view. See the post by GMC on this thread: http://stupidguesttricks.com/vb3/showthread.php?t=2101

So..he puts a blow-up doll that looks like a Gitmo/Abu Ghraib prisoner next to a rollercoaster that is going by so fast most people wouldn't even see it?

Is it just me, or does that seems like a really lame prank?

Typical of Banksy. Lauded by the press for doing really pointless graffiti "art" that is basically meaningless.

Not only that, but he puts it on the outside of a turn, when most people are looking inwards.

Thanks, Mickey for the "chow." I didn't see it before. I notice on the other thread that people thought it might be faked whereas a castmember claimed it did happen and he was there. (see my link above.)
