A group of San Francisco citizens successfully turned a petition into reality on Halloween night as the city’s Salesforce tower transformed into the Eye of Sauron, the infamous antagonist symbol in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series.

The petition read: “San Francisco = Mordor. Salesforce Tower = Eye of Sauron. Run, you fools!”

The Tower

Sure enough, on Halloween night, trick-or-treaters were under the careful eye of the giant tower as the colorful LED installation shone bright.

The 1,070-foot building (designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects) is the tallest high-rise in the city, and was considered an ideal canvas for the look, both for its already-formidable appearance and LED light display capabilities by developers Boston Properties and Hines.

There were reportedly 11,000 LED lights used in the project.
