Why does it have people talking? Neighbor Marcelo Vergara summed it up to WDAF, “Well, it looks like a penis, a giant lit up penis,” he added, “it’s certainly a statement, I don’t know to what but probably not appropriate for the neighborhood.”People have been hypothesizing any other possible explanation of the roof display. Mayyyyybe a sleigh?
Nope. 24-year-old Shelby Gash, who arranged the lights said the display is, “A giant glowing d**k”.
So, naturally the next question is why? “The neighborhood’s kind of like vibe’s kind of gone down ’cause everyone’s kind of uptight,” Gash said, “So it’s more of a, kind of, orneriness. People think it’s hilarious. People are stopping in the middle of the night taking photos and laughing. People think it’s so much fun. I think there’s a lot more laughter than it’s bringing out anything uncomfortable.”
Although, after hearing about how her lights may upset neighbors with young children, Gash took down the lights and told WDAF, “I wish people would come up to me if they’re really bothered by it,” she said.
Sounds like she was right about the vibe of her neighborhood. Here’s video from CBS 17.
