You never know what you’ll find on a beach in Florida. Oil from BP, whale carcasses, sea shells, a giant Lego man… Ego Leonard, an enormous Lego man who stands about 8 feet tall was found in Siesta Key, Florida today.
But how did he get there? Well, one quick Google search of “Ego Leonard” will land you on this page, where the giant Lego man explains:
“My name is Ego Leonard and according to you I come from the virtual world. A world that for me represents happiness, solidarity, all green and blossoming, with no rules or limitations. Lately however, my world has been flooded with fortune-hunters and people drunk with power. And many new encounters in the virtual world have triggered my curiosity about your way of life. I am here to discover and learn about your world and thoughts.”
The Lego man in Florida had his name written on the back of his plastic shirt above the number 8. On the front, the phrase “no real than you are.” Ego Leonard’s website shows that there are more Lego men just like him circumnavigating the globe in order to learn about our world and thoughts.
Do you have a message for Ego Leonard? Seriously, do you? He’s asking for messages. You can email him here.
Here’s a video about Ego Leonard’s discovery.
This isn’t the first time a giant Lego man has washed up on shore. In 2007, a similar (possibly the same) Lego man washed up in the Netherlands.
The Ego Leonard website, which is in Dutch, sells T-shirts. But is that Lego man’s sole purpose?
