Touchdown Jesus aka Big Butter Jesus Getting a Makeover

A huge, 62-foot high statue in Monroe, Ohio, is going to get a makeover. Because its outstretched hands look like someone celebrating a touchdown, the statue has been called the "Touchdown Jesus." Others call it "Big Butter Jesus."

More formally called the "King of Kings," its owner, the Solid Rock Church, plans on repainting it and cleaning it up. It will take approximately 60 gallons of paint to touch up the statue.

Here's a raw video clip that shows the statue, close up.
