RUDY WILLINGHAM CHEWS 150 PIECES TO CREATE PORTRAIT OF COACH PETE CARROLL OUT OF GUM
Rudy, a Seahawks fan, paid a unique tribute to coach Pete Carroll with a sweet mural on Pike Place's iconic gum wall.
Carrol, now stepping down after a 14-year tenure with the team, is well known for his sideline gum chewing, which inspired Rudy to create this mural entirely out of gum.
“There was something about the gum I thought was so funny,” Rudy shared with The Seattle Times. “He always had gum in his mouth, running up the sidelines; it reminded me of a little kid. I loved how much he enjoyed the job and his childlike enthusiasm.”
“I’m never chewing gum again,” quips Rudy.
