Pink Floyd Pig Inspires Trump Protest

By Radio.com Staff

The cover of Pink Floyd’s 1977 album Animals is the inspiration behind one Chicago design firm’s Donald Trump protest.

Animals famously features a floating pig, and New World Design Ltd. is proposing to use pigs of their own to block out the word “Trump” from that city’s Trump Tower.

A description on the company’s official website reads:

Comprised of four gold colored balloon pigs tethered to buoys in the Chicago River, the folly is a design effort by NWD to provide visual relief to the citizens of Chicago by interrupting the view of the ostentatious Trump Tower Chicago sign. The design scheme follows rigorous rationale in providing layers of meaning while allowing for nuanced interpretations by viewers.

Check out an artists rendering of the project, and the original Pink Floyd album cover below.
