Pranksters in Sofia, Bulgaria painted a Soviet era statue of Red Army soldiers to look like American icons.
Taking centre stage is Superman with his distinctive red cape and blue suit. To the left is Santa Claus and to the right Ronald McDonald, the mascot of the fast-food giant McDonalds, and the Joker also makes an appearance. Below the graffiti artist has sprayed “Moving with the times” in Bulgarian black paint. The “artistic vandalism” appeared this morning – but it is still not clear who is behind the colourful display.
