Quite possibly given he doesn't normally video the process.

What are the rules about video recording on the London Underground

Banksy: Hold this fence for me while we break into the depot.
Colleague: OK boss, in we go!
Banksy: Now help me spray paint all over this carriage.
Colleague: Done. We just had enough black to finish the job.

Colleague: Sorry boss, I can't let you do that, we don't have a permit.
