It appears that a piece of street art by Russian P183 that consisted of a space invader moving back and forth under an overpass shooting lasers out of its eyes amused locals, however the police do not share the same sense of humor.  They reported it as a bomb threat .

In an interview with Primetimerussia a masked P183 states,

I’m shocked at the police reaction! Who could have possibly mistaken a 2 metre wide space invader for a bomb? What astonishes me th most is that when the media reported this they had a picture of actual grenades next to the text.

Actually it is worth watching the clip all the way to the end to see that chicks love street artists!

Male Reporter: And also if he doesn’t want to be mistaken for a terrorist, probably wearing a balaclava is not the smartest idea either.
Female Reporter: Well that’s what street artists do, you see
Male Reporter: Dress like terrorists or freedom fighters….
Female: That’s part of the romance, don’t you find it appealing? (smiles)
Male Reporter: You tell me, I’ll take your word for it.
Female reporter: Wear a balaclava tomorrow and we’ll see where it takes us.
