For years, conspiracy theories have swirled around Denver Airport:
SINCE THE AIRPORT’S OPENING IN 1995, THERE HAVE BEEN ENDLESS RUMORS AND THEORIES. PEOPLE SAY OUR UNDERGROUND TUNNELS LEAD TO SECRET MEETING FACILITIES FOR THE WORLD’S ELITE. OUR BLUE HORSE IS THOUGHT TO BE CURSED. SOME BELIEVE WE ARE CONNECTED TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER AND THE FREEMASONS. SOME PEOPLE EVEN SAY THAT WE ARE HOME TO A COLONY OF LIZARD PEOPLE.
So, the airport decided to embrace the weirdness and got themselves a talking gargoyle!
“I think they used to be annoyed by it, but in recent years we’ve just embraced it,” airport media-relations chief Heath Montgomery previously told Thrillist. The airport has embraced its unique place, even using conspiracy theory ads inside the airport in summer 2018. That embrace has continued with a very elaborate prank involving a gargoyle.
A video uploaded on February 28 shows an animatronic gargoyle speaking to travelers as they move through the airport. It talks about the conspiracies and the funny hats people are wearing, surprising many passersby, including some of the airport’s staff.
