The Trampoline


Most of you have never seen this thing because you don’t live in Rotterdam. Some of you do live in Rotterdam, but have never had the tendency to look up after going to the movies at Venster/Lantaarn (Gouvernestraat, Rotterdam). Again, there are some who do live in Rotterdam and look up after going to the movies, yet seeing nothing but a faint image overgrown with plants and stuff… Here’s Rigardus when he was still ‘bald’. Gyz took this picture after the infamous Space Invader had left his mark in the down left corner of the photograph. Under the right circumstances one can see them smiling at each other… Dude!

The Rotterdam Giant (who actually used to live in the same street, in the Nighttown offices) and his creators are proud to thank these guys right here for support and realisation!

Our friend Geert Mul once claimed that it looks like a big trampoline, attached to the wall… We’ve been calling it that ever since.

    Daar heb je ook zo’n kapperszaak waar op een bord staat “wij gaan door waar anderen kappen”.

    Goeie zin is dat.
