Guest Contributor, Josh Cohen

In an unexpected turn of events, the city of Las Vegas finds itself swept up in a wave of excitement and bewilderment as reports flood in about the peculiar sightings of this gargantuan cephalopod, back on the Las Vegas Strip.

This mysterious, 3D-anamorphic creature, dubbed ‘Artie the Octopus’ by intrigued locals, has been breaking through massive digital screens on the Vegas Strip and embarking on a whimsical exploration of the City’s landmarks. We first met Artie during F1 where he was smashing through the ELV8 screen at the Waldorf Astoria. Artie has defied expectations and now migrated down to one of the biggest and brightest screens in Las Vegas, the LV Gateway. Located at one of the busiest intersections of Sahara and Las Vegas Blvd, Artie has now claimed this 9,000 Sq Ft screen as his home for the Super Bowl festivities.

The City is abuzz with curious whispers and puzzled speculation, questioning the legitimacy of these unexpected encounters. The elusive Artie has been seen throwing footballs through the screen and spiking them onto the Vegas Strip. As residents and visitors alike scratch their heads in confusion, the burning question on everyone’s minds is: what will this enigmatic octopus do next?? The anticipation is palpable, and the City eagerly awaits the next chapter in Artie’s spontaneous adventures through the neon-lit streets of Las Vegas.

In the meantime, if you’re lucky enough to catch a glimpse of Artie settling into his new digs, watch your step and beware his reaching tentacles…
