Ever seen a creepier tower?

The fact that there are 10 of these huge crawling babies permanently attached to a television tower in the czech republic really does make me happy.

The tower itself, sans faceless toddlers, was built in the mid-late 80s and stands 216 metres tall. Even without the babies it’d be a strange looking beast, but that didn’t deter the geniuses in charge of the tower from permanently attaching David Cerny’s sculptures to its legs - in 2000 they were added as a temporary installation but the public loved them so much that they were kept for good.
