BUNNY!

Because after all the sad and all the bullshit and all the stress this week, a giant pink bunny is exactly what we all need. Rock it out Daily Mail.

Giant Bunny from the sky

Hey, that bunny looks pretty big.

How big is it?

Giant Bunny from Google Earth

Wow, that looks pretty big. Seriously; I'm not an albatross. How big is the damn thing?

Giant Bunny foot and creative team

Oh, so that's the bottom of one of the feet with the creators.

Holy shit.
A giant pink rabbit has been created in the Alps that can be seen from space.

Visitors are encouraged by those who made it to climb all over the 200ft toy sculpture and even sleep on it.

But the Austrian art collective who created the bunny were amazed to find that it is so large the rabbit can be seen from space via the Google Earth programme.

It is made of soft, waterproof, materials and stuffed with straw to make it comfortable to rest on.
...
Wolfgang Gantner of the Vienna-based art group, Gelitin, said: 'It's supposed to make you feel small, like Gulliver. You walk around it and you can't help but smile.

'We like to see hikers climb up the bunny's 20ft sides and relax on his belly.'
...
[The sign next to it] reads: 'Behind a hill, as if knitted by giant grandmothers, lies this vast rabbit, to make you feel as small as a daisy.'

I wanna nap on the big bunny too.

It's actually placed in NW Italy. Closest I can get for flights is into Nice, France. Starts at $830 one way.

Let's just go.
