Montreal's Fire Hydrants Are Being Turned Into Giant Sriracha Bottles

Now if only they could actually dispense hot sauce.
Montreal's Fire Hydrants Are Being Turned Into Giant Sriracha Bottles

I was walking home the other day when I noticed a fire hydrant with a green top. I didn't think much of it at first but as I walked passed it i also noticed some white letters on the side. I went in for a closer look and was pleasantly surprised, some mysterious artist had turned the fire hydrant into a giant bottle of Sriracha sauce.

It's so simple yet so genius. 2 cans of spray paint, a pre-cut stencil and 5 minutes is all you need. If you'd like to see it for yourself, this one stands at the corner of Sainte-Famille and Prince Arthur in the Plateau. At first I thought it was the only one but as I kept walking towards Saint-Laurent I noticed a few more. I'm not quite sure how many of these there are out there but I say, keep 'em coming.
