Hungary’s clown-shaped electrical towers

I never really imagined that I’d see clown-shaped electrical towers anywhere, but Hungary’s clown-shaped electrical towers have proven that what I imagine, or don’t imagine, has no bearing on reality. Laughing Squid recently published some photos of electrical towers throughout Hungary that are so creative that I hardly believe they actually exist. Constructed in the shape of clowns (yes, clowns, like the ones that wear makeup and perform at children’s birthday parties), these high voltage electrical towers are, if nothing else, unique. Installed by MAVIR (the Hungarian transmission system operator), the goal seems to be to “humanize” gigantic scale landmarks. Wish these were in your country? Happy that they aren’t?
