A giant, 8-foot tall LEGO man washed ashore on Florida’s Siesta Key yesterday. On the figure’s back, it “reads ‘EGO LEONARD’ and has the number eight.” This wasn’t the first time a giant LEGO man has washed ashore though as in 2008 a similar figure appeared in England. Video after the break.

Ego Leonard did not immediately respond to a request for comment by The Huffington Post, but did send the following message to the Herald Tribune: “I am glad I crossed over. Although it was a hell of a swim. Nice weather here and friendly people. I think I am gonna stay here for a while. A local sheriff escorted me to my new home.”
