Yes, this is real.
Danny Devito who despite his short stature has grown with several generations as a go-to personality in classic comedy TV shows like ‘Taxi’ and ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’, but apparently in a slightly hidden room connected to the men’s bathroom somewhere in the visual arts building at SUNY college. This story got our smart-ass attention from VICE.
The ‘Shrine’ features a cut-out of the portly actor with candles and other knick-knacks, as a well as sign demanding you “Leave an offering for our lord and savior Danny DeVito, patron saint of trash men.” Sophmore Phillip Hosang has taken credit for the oddly placed tribute.
“I walked in there, and I thought that this would be just a really great place to put some weird thing that people could find. And from there I was just trying to figure out what I should do with it,” Hosang said in an interview with VICE. “Because of all the trash—if you know Always Sunny, you know that Danny DeVito is known as like the trash man—I was like, ‘This is just the perfect person to go with. He’s just weird enough that people would accept that this was a thing.‘”
Devito himself was charmed by the ridiculousness of it all, which he acknowledged on Twitter.
Your shrine honors me. My heart is filled with love and garbage.Tomorrow, as you may know, is my name day. Do something that makes you feel good. Above all be kind to each other. Pick up trash, recycle, and be aware of plastics in the ocean. https://t.co/UER6uZY886
