A dye-hard prankster had the famed fountain at Lincoln Center bubbling bright yellow water Saturday.
The fountain was turned off after suddenly changing color about 1 p.m.
“A water based yellow dye was put into the fountain,” Lincoln Center spokeswoman Mary Caraccioli said in a statement. “The fountain is being cleaned. Our security team notified the NYPD.”
There were no immediate arrests.
“I just hope that’s Mountain Dew,” Lloyd Jacobson joked on Twitter.
