Cloud Gate is a public sculpture by Indian-born British artist Sir Anish Kapoor, that is the centerpiece of AT&T Plaza at Millennium Park. It is often referred to as "The Bean".

As Zippy approaches, the sculpture calls out to Zippy and identifies itself to him. Zippy seems confused by the fun house mirror and sees David Schwimmer. Zippy sees himself and admits that he's used to being beside himself. In the end Zippy has the urge for a big shiny everything bagel.

The sculpture can be seen in Google Street View.
