A Soviet era star at the top of a tower in the city of Voronezh, Russia was given a Bikini Bottom styled makeover recently. 

The star was re-painted by some SpongeBob SquarePants fan and now resembles Patrick Star.


Images of the star surfaced online on Thursday evening, entertaining many, however the culprits could face a heavy fine and prison sentence if found. A town official has said that restoration works could amount to a cost of $1,500 and those responsible may be detained for up to 15 days. 

A poll under the photo in one of Voronezh online communities showed that around 60 percent found the stunt funny, while 39 percent said that it was an act of vandalism that shouldn’t go unpunished.

Some comments suggested that the square in front of the building should now be “painted as Sponge Bob” to match the star.
