A large octopus sits on top of the car wash sign. If you look closely you'll see he is completing many a task, such as vacuuming and waxing. There is an additional car-washing octopus at 2202 University Ave.

[Jean Dunk, 02/08/2011]

We've seen 'em in other cities as well (The most recent tally we find is 23 locations in six states, and we assume no one opens an Octopus Car Wash without the octopus). So -- not uncommon, but still amusing. Tentacled Multitasker of the Deep!
