The New Orleans Pelicans (forever funny) needed to make a drastic change to their nightmare-inducing mascot Pierre before All-Star weekend. So they did.
Here’s what Pierre looked like before the change:
As you can see, Pierre wasn’t very family friendly. In fact, I’m terrified of him myself and I’m a grown man.
Earlier this week, the Pelicans tweeted out a photo of Pierre undergoing “plastic surgery”:

Finally late on Wednesday, Pierre’s post-surgery look was unveiled:

Very much improved look. Maybe now fans can bring their kids to Pelicans games without worrying about Pierre scaring the daylights out of them.
