Tweet 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”: NEWS: @PierreTPelican underwent successful surgery yesterday at Ochsner Medical Center – http://t.co/qI6gXts2J1 | pic.twitter.com/PdcWhzaOKF — New Orleans Pelicans (@PelicansNBA) February 11, 2014 Finally late on Wednesday, Pierre’s post-surgery look was unveiled: Speedy recovery, indeed. Welcome back, @PierreTPelican! pic.twitter.com/rkV6qp47O7 — New Orleans Pelicans (@PelicansNBA) February 13, 2014 Very much improved look. Maybe now fans can bring their kids to Pelicans games without worrying about Pierre scaring the daylights out of them. -ALR
