LEBANON, OH (FOX19) -

Lebanon High School recently held a fundraiser in which students could paint their parking spots at the school. One student, who wanted to make sure no one stole his spot, make sure to take advantage of the opportunity.

Kids spent several hours painting their spots, and the exceptional artwork made for a few exceptional aerial visuals:

Here's a still from the video:

About 25 seconds into the video -- posted to the Lebanon City Schools Facebook page -- a male student explains why he painted his spot the way he did.

"I chose 'Clippy' because I knew he'd be a good deterrent from keeping people from parking in my spot," he said.

Nothing wrong with creativity.

Readers may recognize Clippy as the Office Assistant associated with Microsoft Office. Clippy got his start in the late 90s and drew ire from many users for years.

Those who get a chance to drive through the school's parking lot will notice about 70 works of art, thanks to the 2018 senior class and Friends of Academics Group. The school also thanked Home Depot for its support in the project.
