Awesome Temporary Eiffel Tower Modification

Read more info here - a temporary, carbon Kevlar observation deck was attached to the tower's top in March this year, to celebrate its 120th birthday.



This is one of the most ambitious (and admittedly beautiful) temporary modification projects ever conceived.

It is also a line of Japanese toys, of course.

The weird arm-flapping guy on the third animated gif is Andre van Duin, a dutch commedian. This clip is from very early in his carreer. I think he is like 60 jears old now, while in the clip he must be in his early 20's.
