Check out this mechanized sculpture that’s headed for the new Marlins ballpark! Maybe it’s my fondness for plastic pink flamingos, but I love this thing. Unfortunately, I might be the only one. The comments below the video are almost entirely negative. My favorites:

There is nothing innovative about this structure… this is supposed to be a modern stadium. Not an old fashion carnival ride.

Looks like a gay wedding cake, not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Looks like a Filipino taxicab!

You’ve got to be kidding. This is tacky with a capital T!!!!

WTF? That thing is stupid! What’s next, having In The Navy played when the Marlins take the field?

Seems like people think this sculpture is too gay, too ethnic, and generally ugly. Me? I think it’s fun.
