Video Of The Tallest Skyscraper In San Francisco Turned Into The Eye Of Sauron For Halloween Night

November 1, 2018

Following a successful petition on, a group calling themselves The Fellowship managed to convince Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff to turn the LED screen at the top of the company's tower in San Francisco into the Eye Of Sauron on Halloween night. These are several videos of that. Per The Fellowship's petition while I show my coworker Greg my bare feet and ask him how much Hobbit he thinks I have in me:

A city built on creativity, exploration, and burning self-expression. We invite the organization to fly a flag for all who dare to dream, uniting the districts, strengthening the ties, and fortifying the bridges by lighting an LED fire atop this sanctuary city. In the process embracing a fun, artistic, and timely show of creativity that the whole city can enjoy - for one night only.

It has been said that bonds are formed through shared experiences, the strongest of which are forged in fire. We ask of you to help us unite the city, and raise the torch on Halloween night as one community, together.

Not the most moving petition I've ever read, but it worked. It's also not the best looking Eye Of Sauron I've ever seen, but I guess you get what you pay for. It looks like it's the result of somebody's first day of experimenting with animation. I've seen more convincing Eyes Of Sauron made in Microsoft Excel.

Keep going for a bunch of videos of the Eye doing its thing.

Thanks to K Diddie, who's just happy to see the website finally being used for some good.

    Finally a petition people of all walks of life can get behind.

    This is where "It was the thought that counted" seems appropriate.

  • Gingerbread

    at some point they could have just asked the rights to use a short clip from the actual movies.

  • Homestar

    An attempt was made.

  • Munihausen

    The irony, and lack of self-awareness. Unlike LoTR, can’t make this sht up.

  • GeneralDisorder

    It's gotta look better from a distance.
