Mayor Anthony Dumarey stated to VTW NWS, “We have indeed already received a lot of reactions to our luminous ornaments. “We had a limited budget, so our technical department designed the lighting ourselves. It was certainly not intended to turn out like this. When the lights are not on, the evocative shape is not visible. But once lit, you can see it, clearly”. The mayor, however, stated that they won’t remove those lights since they have already become the talk of the town, no, the world. To prove his point, Mayor Anthony Dumarey himself posed near the controversial lights.
Mayor Won’t Remove The Lights As It’s Already Become Famous Worldwide
Mayor Anthony Dumarey added “It is not that big of a problem. We could use some humour in these times”, boy, is he right. The phallic-shaped lights cost around €165 ( ₹14,510) each to make. And since it’s already garnering a lot of attention, the Mayor encourages locals to let it be. Meanwhile, did you know that Haesindang Park in South Korea is dedicated to big dicks?
