Golden Driller: Titanic Oil Man

Amazingly huge statue! You won't miss this 76-foot-tall man. The center of the statue is said to contain the world's largest unobstructed interior volume.

Golden Driller.

Golden Driller: Titanic Oil Man

September, 2013: Sadly, the Golden Driller's mighty, golden torso is currently sullied with a dark T-shirt shilling for a local radio station. In addition, his oil well blazes a different ad on all four sides. Even the big GD had his price. "Pitiful, just pitiful," as another oil man, Jed Clampett was fond of saying.

[Professor Echo, 09/25/2013]

If they put a long skirt and a headdress on him there'd be even more room for ads.
