Vancouver’s Penis Satan is back as an augmented reality app
Warning: This story may contain material and images that are offensive to some audiences.
It’s been years since Penis Satan, the famous (or infamous) sculpture, fell into reality, taking its temporary place near Clark and the Great Northern Way.
But the big red devil with a big red tail (and an erection) is back, in a way, and can be wherever you need him. Obsidian, the anonymous artist who claimed the controversial piece decided to release an augmented reality version.
“Penis Satan is my gift to the world that keeps on giving,” the artist says in a video posted on social media.
To drop Penis Satan in any situation, people can go to the Penis Satan website and launch it from there (this will open the camera feature on a phone and after a minute the PS will be up ). Penis Satan presents himself as being about the same height as a human and holding himself in place with his signature… vague.
While the bright red naked devil only lasted a short time, it has sunk deep into Vancouver’s collective memory. Last year it was also resurrected as an NFT by Obsidian.
