Last month it was reported that an overzealous fan destroyed the Joshua Tree famed photographer Anton Corbijn used in the artwork throughout U2‘s Joshua Tree album. But now another fan has braved rattles snakes, coyotes, tarantulas and other Mojave desert critters to repair it in the middle of the night.
Impressively, he fixed the tree with just one flashlight to guide him in the pitch-black park.
Working arduously from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m., George repaired the tree using adhesive, liquid screws, and a little bit of dirt to blend over his work. To show his process, he shared a video of the project.
“Can’t even tell the tree was hacked away,” he said after, admiring his work. “It looks good. Hopefully nobody else f—s it up. If something is going to happen to the tree, let it happen naturally. We don’t need to speed the process up by damaging it. See how long it lasts out here for other generations to enjoy it.”
