A 1600-pound butt is touring Las Vegas, Denver, Kansas City, Louisville and more this summer, "for no other reason than it's dumb".

Spotted in Virginia today, the 14-foot tall sculpture was made by comedian Kurt Braunholer, who is driving it around on the back of a truck for a solid week.

"The world is a pretty tough place to live in," Braunohular told WCAV-TV, "so we thought we could brighten peoples days with a bit of randomness, and that is why I am driving around a giant butt."

Ahead of the drive, he said on his website: "I have no idea what this will be like. It’s a large, flat-bed truck I’ll be driving. I’ve never driven a large, flat-bed truck. Much less a large, flat-bed truck with a giant butt on it.

"So here’s our proposed route - who knows if we’ll be able to stick to this schedule. We’re gonna try. We’re dropping the butt off in my mom’s driveway in New Jersey. She is not aware of this yet."

The journey is part of a pilot Braunohler is making for Comedy Central called Better. Dumber. Faster, which will be "all about inserting absurdity into stranger’s lives to make this bleak world a little bit brighter."

The Love Butt tour started in Las Vegas on 30 June and wraps up in Washington DC this week.
