A Very Big, Very Illegal Pikachu Statue Popped Up In New Orleans

Untitled-1

Visit Coliseum Park in New Orleans and you might just spot a surprising new addition – a statue of Pikachu. What’s even more surprising is that it shouldn’t be there at all. It was erected illegally overnight by a group calling themselves “#Pokemonument”.

The whole piece is designed to look weathered and worn, as though it had been standing there for years. With a wooden base and a wire mesh body covered in fibreglass, the entire thing took seven weeks to complete, and required seven people to surreptitiously assemble it overnight without getting caught. Now that is dedication.

If you’re in the area, it’s well worth checking out. After all, who knows how long it’ll remain standing for (if it hasn’t been taken down already)? Check out another pic and a video below.

What a time to be alive. #pokemonument #pikachu #coliseumpark #gardendistrict #followyournola
