"Upskirt Photo" or "Marilyn Moon-roe"

Recently, Chicago got a little flash of Hollywood.  On north Michigan Avenue, in a spot called "Pioneer Square", Seward Johnson's "Forever Marilyn" blew into town.  You would think a 27 foot woman would know better than to wear a dress like that in a place dubbed, "The Windy City".


On Tuesday at lunch, I walked up to see the statue and snap some pictures.

The funny thing is, I took a picture like this one with my cell phone, posted it to Facebook, and tried to tag that Sassy Carnival Girl, but failed.  But about 10 minutes after I posted it, she commented on the picture.  Spooky!


That's a "stiff" breeze!


You can see both London and France from here…


Wonder how long it will be before a graffiti artist decides he can't resist the temptation?


Baby got back!


  Marilyn, where are your hands?  Is that why you're smiling?


Back in 2009, Seward Johnson had another statue in the same plaza.  No one was trying to look up her skirt.

My review.  I get that it's derivative, and not original.  And by looking at Marilyn's feet, I can tell she's going to show some age pretty quick unless she's going to get her makeup done frequently.  With all that said, I like it.  It put a smile on my face, and it certainly had people talking.

And yet, no picture of someone standing between her legs, looking straight up, mouth open.

All I gotta say is thank God she's wearing underwear!

@Joshua: how much you wanna bet he's going back the second he has time to do just that?
