The famous "Vidler on the Roof" can see once again!

Store owner Don Vidler reported the giant mascot was missing his glasses in an instagram post earlier this month.

On Friday, Vidler announced that East Aurora's Luminated Landscapes had presented the giant roof mascot with some new specs.

The loaner glasses are a bit of an upgrade from the old ones -- they light up at night!

But owners have a bit of a warning for anyone thinking about trying to swipe them -- there's a brand new 24 hour surveillance camera in place to catch anyone who is up to no good.
