The Internet Is Rather Frightened By The Big Merino's New Look

Aliens are coming to Goulburn.

The iconic Big Merino in Goulburn has been lit up recently, to raise awareness for green energy.

The merino - named Rambo - will be "tainted green" every night until November 16, with the hope the illuminated eyeballs will encourage the community to "make the switch" to green energy.

Rambo is one of many "big" Australian icons plastered across the country.

Rambo is 15 metres tall and made of concrete. He sits off the edge of a gift shop and wool display on the highway between Sydney and Canberra, but people can also climb to the top and look through Rambo's eyes.

Of course, the internet had other ideas - focussing less on the eco-friendly message Rambo was trying to share and more on the HUGE GLOWING GREEN DEMONIC EYES.

"remember who you are Simba" #bigmerino
