In honor of Leap Day, may I present one of the coolest pools I’ve ever seen?  Ich Bin Kong‘s “Jump For My Love” pool in Germany takes inspiration from the classic 80s jam by The Pointer Sisters.  (I thought maybe leaping, jumping — there’s a connection there!)

jump for my love pool

The artist’s goal was to put messages where you wouldn’t expect them, and I think a pool is the perfect place. It’s an adorably appropriate thing to spot from the diving board, and I imagine it must give people flying above in airplanes a little thrill, too. I know I can’t help but be thrilled, because whenever I hear these lyrics, I think of Hugh Grant shaking his groove thing in Love Actually. Maybe it’s not the mental association the artist wanted me to have, but it works for me!
