From the creator of the bubble stroller
— the one that floods the air with bubbles during Bay to Breakers — comes the Haight Ashbury Hippie Trap
, an event event hosted by one man who claims he encapsulated the minds of hippies high on DMT.
The Hippie Trap Guy sprung his cylindrical light show to life just before Christmas Day, drawing revelers that gazed up beneath it and illuminating the Haight Street sidewalk until Saturday when a neighbor whose window faced the throbbing lights complained that it was disturbing the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood.
"Turns out you can only please 99.9 percent of people," The Hippie Trap Guy said
. "The 0.1 percent had their bedroom right next to it, so fair enough."
Apart from the uninteresting electronics and LEDs, this guy constructed the marvel from his daughter’s wiffle ball, two hula hoops he found on the street and spliced together, four dollar store Christmas decorations and a 2-by-4
plank. Oh, and twist ties, a plastic bucket and some clothes lines.
