Man invites community to TP his Colorado Springs home

Posted: Updated:
COLORADO SPRINGS -

In the true spirit of Halloween, one man in Colorado Springs has invited the community over to come toilet paper his house.

The TPing is happening all day and night on Tuesday off of Modes and 26th Street.

"Most people hear about TPing a house, stuff like that but no one ever actually has done it," Trevor Pellegrin, the resident said.

Until, today.

"They're TPing their own house which is going to be a lot of cleanup as you can see," Elijah Esposito, a 12-year-old neighbor said.

Even Esposito got to throw his first roll Tuesday night.

"It was a fun learning experience," he said.

Pellegrin came up with this idea about a month ago and posted it on Facebook and Craiglist. He added his address yesterday and by the time he came home from work, his house was covered in paper.

"It's unreal, you have to come and see it for yourself," he said.

All, to give people a smile.

"Everyone's got problems in their life with bills, depression, lost families members, stuff like that, so just seeing the smiles on kids faces when they're throwing that toilet paper, in that moment, nothing else matters, it's just pure happiness," he said.

And a chance to forget.

"If you come here and you throw a roll of toilet paper, I guarantee, you will not think of any stress in that moment," he said.

Neighbors News5 spoke with supported it...

"As long as they're enjoying themselves, what the heck, why not," Jeff Parsons, a neighbor said.

Just as long as it stayed in their yard.

"You're not going to put that much toilet paper up there and expect your neighbors to take care of it for you and not complain," Parsons said.

Don't worry, Jeff, Trevor says he plans to start the cleanup process first thing Wednesday morning.

"I'm going to take as much time as it takes to clean every last piece of toilet paper up and I'm going to do it with a smile on my face because I've put smiles on hundreds of other people's faces just by making this possible," Pellegrin said.

A couple of ground rules here, he asks to avoid his neighbors yards and don't bring any eggs or forks.

He says the best way to throw toilet paper is actually underhand and you should be able to get multiple throws out of it.
