A man in Sydney, Australia is trolling airline passengers arriving into the city. He’s painted “Welcome to Perth” – which is the capital of Western Australia, and on the other side of the country – onto his roof.
He was apparently painting a building he owns anyway and had his painters add this to their job. They used road paint “so it doesn’t go unnoticed” according to the owner. One passenger shared online that they’ve been fooled, and wondered if their flight which had taken off from Perth had to divert.
While first posted on Facebook, the photo really took off when it made it onto Reddit on Friday, with users making comments such as “Pilot be like, ‘stupid GPS'” and “How long till there is one in Perth saying ‘Welcome to Sydney’?”
Another captured the mood by commenting, “I am exactly the type of person that would finally manage to get five minutes of sleep just before landing, wake up to this dazed and confused and freak the f— out. Bravo,” one person wrote.
Landing in Sydney always makes me think of this classic Paul Kelly song,
