The innovative Dutch have gone ahead with a plan to illuminate their streets with paint and do away with lamps. The paint glows in the dark and shines in a green neon colour that they hope will attract aliens in their UFO's to land there.
The inventor of the paint is artist, Daan Roosegarde, who is well known in 'green circles' and got the idea whilst illuminating his plantation in the attic of his penthouse.
"Man dey looked just great all lit up in green," he said after releasing several puffs of green smoke into the Dutch pristine air. He also swore that he saw several UFO's circling above his penthouse, but sadly they had nowhere to land because parking in Holland is just too expensive.
So he came up with the idea to illuminate Dutch streets at night in the colour green because aliens love green and after presenting the idea to green MP, Geert Wilders, who can stand green aliens, but hates brown ones, has allowed the first streets near a town called Oss not Oz to be illuminated.
The results have been astonishing because many green lovers have been seen camping alongside the lights hoping to be the first to greet their new friends when they land with a quick joint and "kopje koffie" in the land of Nod, not Oz near Oss!
