Online pawn shop Pawngo.com left 900 pounds of Butterfingers candy bars in Copley Square to mock Patriots receiver Wes Welker, who dropped a key pass late in Super Bowl XLVI.
The website also left a large placard reading, “Thank you Wes Welker” next to the pile of candy.
“We’re giving Boston a late morning snack to get over Sunday’s loss #butterfingers” a post read on the company’s Twitter feed.
Check out a pic of the Butterfingers below.
