Twenty Giant Purple Tentacles Emerging From The Windows Of Old Navy Building

October 9, 2018


This is a video of Building 611 at Philadelphia's Navy Yard, where artists FilthyLuker and Pedro Estrellas (Luke Egan and Pete Hamilton) added twenty giant, inflatable tentacles poking out the windows to create 'The Navy Yard Sea Monster'. How whimsical. Thankfully it's not a real sea monster or I'd feel sorry for the animal control workers who get dispatched to that job. *two workers pull up to building in city truck* Oh hell no, let's go grab some cheesesteaks and ring the Liberty Bell.

Keep going for some drone fly-bys.

Thanks to MSA, who agrees the Eagles need to get it together.

  • At least this tentacle monster will be able to enjoy great deals on fashion for the whole family!

    Wait, we are talking about the same Old Navy, right?

    I, for one, welcome our new Lovecraftian overlords.

    Aww, was really hoping they were animated, like those Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Flailing Tubemen.

    I am disappoint. :-(

    The do move a little bit, at the end you see them kind of bobbing up and down a bit - they aren't completely stationary. Plus, it could have been an unbreezy day. Bet these things look scary during a rainstorm.

    Colors so vibrant it looks like the tentacles are computer animated....
    I can' tell what is real and what is artificial!!!!
    How is one to live life when they can't tell the difference between reality and fantasy?!..... I guess they become President....

    So do people work there? It looks abandoned...think it would be cooler if people worked there though an interesting way to pretty up an unused space I guess.

    Except how many people pull in the parking lot today and go, "Nope ... I quit."
