Budweiser is supporting commuters who can’t stand the Holland Tunnel’s Christmas decorations — by putting up some cringe-inducing signage at its Newark brewery.
“We stand with @WhosCory. This is what our Newark Brewery will look like until they #MoveThatTree. #TunnelNotTonnel,” the Missouri-based company tweeted Wednesday, along with an image showing a wreath placed on top of the “U” in its Budweiser sign and a triangular tree slapped above the “E.”
Motorist Cory Windelspecht was so enraged by the Holland Tunnel’s Jersey-side toll plaza that has a tree over the letter “N” instead of the more logical “A” and a wreath hanging over the “U” — turning the word “Tunnel” into “Tonnel” — that he started a petition to change it, saying the sign is a holiday nightmare for people with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
He’d collected 1,363 signatures by Wednesday, over 700 more than on Tuesday.
“Thank You @budweiserusa This is why you truly are the King of Beers. Hey @PANYNJ This Bud’s For You!!!” Windelspecht tweeted back at the brewery.
The Port Authority launched a poll Wednesday asking commuters to decide if the signage should change and how.
