Fresh from reports that Alaska’s favorite giant snowman Snowzilla had been killed off by the local council, a mystery fan has decided to take matters into his own hands an build Snozilla anyway!
Snowzilla started in 2005 when Anchorage local Billy Powers decided he wanted to build something special for Christmas. The giant snowman, originally 16 feet (5m) tall but slightly bigger in following years gained national, then international attention. However neighbors weren’t very happy about the traffic, and city officials decided that Snowzilla was a public nuisance and safety hazard, issueing a cease-and-desist order.
A smiling Powers fronted cameras’ Christmas Eve to explain how he awoke to find Snowzilla had returned this year without his help (video below).
City officials said they wouldn’t be taken action on the matter until after Christmas.
