Last week, two U.S. Marine pilots joined the likes of previous Navy and Air Force pilots that have been administratively chastised for using their aircraft to draw penises in the sky. Now, it appears test pilots out of Seville, Spain may be looking to join the fight with a festive twist; apparently drawing a massive “dick in a box” in the skies over the Gulf of Cadiz. This drawing, like the Marine Corps drawing over Southern California last month, wasn’t visible to the naked eye but could be clearly seen via flight tracker.

According to the tracking software, the aircraft responsible for this homage to Saturday Night Live’s famous “Dick in a Box” music video starring Andy Sandberg and Justin Timberlake was an Airbus A400M Atlas — a military transport aircraft used to replace dated airlift platforms like Transall C-160s and older Lockheed C-130s in European military forces like Germany, the U.K., and France. Airbus maintains a manufacturing plant for the A400M in Seville, Spain; so this piece of modern art was likely the handiwork of Airbus test pilots operating out of the plant.
