I wonder what happened to this Bush Gardens Williamsburg display from 2012.

Climate protesters glue themselves to Porsche museum but needed to go potty.

Climate change activists protesting industries and governments had a busy summer in Europe. A relentless outfit called Just Stop Oil in the UK has created disruptions everywhere from major highways to the British Formula 1 Grand Prix, and more recently, they threw tomato soup on a Van Gogh painting at the National Gallery in London. Across the Channel, the Tour de France cycling race was forced to pause during several stages by climate activists who’d glued themselves to the road. Over the western border, a group called Scientist Rebellion took the sticky route when nine members glued their hands to the floor of the Porsche pavilion at Volkswagen’s Autostadt museum in Wolfsburg on Thursday.
