If you take a cruise through Vermont, you might catch a glimpse of this 7-foot wooden middle finger along Route 128.

The massive sculpture was carved out of a 700 lb block of pine and sits 16 feet in the air on the property of Ted Pelkey, who commissioned the piece as a big “fuck you” to the town of Westford. Pelkey is pissed at city officials for blocking a land development project on his 11-acre property.

What started as a protest has become quite the tourist attraction with daily visitors, however the artwork has since caught the attention of Kid Rock who contacted Pelkey about getting one for his Nashville property.

And, according to WCAX, it’s happening.

“I laughed and said, ‘Well, have him call me,'” Pelkey said.

And then he got this message: “Hey Ted, Merry Christmas. It’s Bob Ritchie, Kid Rock.”

He told Pelkey, “I like your style. Thanks for getting us the info on that middle finger. I gotta have one of those on my property here in Nashville.”

Pelkey contacted the Vermont artist who agreed to make another for Kid Rock., and now, Pelkey and his wife are delivering it to the rock star in person.

The next time you’re in Nashville, take a drive past Kid Rock’s house, you just might see one of these waving at you.
