We’re typically used to seeing ferries sailing along the Hudson River, but this past weekend we saw something a bit more unexpected.
According to West Side Rag, on Saturday, January 13th, a 33-foot-tall statue of rapper Kid Cudi was seen atop a barge being pulled by a tugboat down the East River. The next morning, on Sunday, it was then seen floating down the Hudson River along the Upper West Side.
According to EV Grieve, the statue was also spotted on Monday morning, January 15th, at 6am on the East River as it made its way from 14th Street down toward the Williamsburg Bridge.
West Side Rag stated that Kid Cudi is using the statue as a way to promote his new album “INSANO,” which was released last Friday, January 12th.
And those that saw the statue had mixed feelings.
The Laughing Squid writes that some people were upset saying that the statue looked a bit demonic. Though others replied to Kid Cudi’s video of the statue, which he posted to Twitter, saying things like “So rad!” and “That looks so dope!!”
The Los Angeles Times added that the statue of Kid Cudi was also seen in Paris, France, and Long Beach, California before making its way to NYC. As of now we’re not sure where the statue is off to next.
