Check out photos from any city that currently has a team playing in the NFL playoffs and you’ll find some type of honor bestowed upon them. In Indianapolis, buildings are projected in blue and white. In San Francisco, City Hall and the San Francisco International airport are proudly displaying red and gold. And in Kansas City there’s a dyed red fountain which probably seemed like a good idea at first but the execution didn’t go so well.

In an attempt to honor the Chiefs for their success this season and to show support for their upcoming playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Parks and Recreation decided to dye the Northland Fountain red.

That was all fine and dandy until the fountain froze and well, it turned into what looks to be a giant nightmare fueling red octopus/crab looking creature. Seriously, somebody get a flame thrower down there ASAP to unfreeze that bad boy.

Very cool idea by the KCPR however and a bit different than the traditional building lighting you so often see.
