  1. When you have a 10 billion and you buy a 100 million painting and give 100 million to charity and still have 9.8 billion left… crazy

  2. Farm auctions by far more exciting. Dudes not even talking fast. Like to see them having a real auctioneer and the people in a bidding war. Hooooooo! Yuuuup!!

  3. Look man if im taking all the risk I need to make some profit, plus auctioneers commission. Ill give you my best offer, $25 plus $10 store credit.

  4. Piccaso's real unique piece. Only the one in the world! priceless! 👍👍

    Mona Lisa is the most expensive painting today = $867M

  5. Picasso is turning blue in his grave with laughter knowing how these rich fools are scrambling to buy his art which is nothing but kids scribbles.

  6. How many times could he repeat the same numbers for every bid. Couldn’t listen to more than half before being extremely annoying
