We hand it to the organizers of the Idaho Potato Drop for trying to embrace what makes the Gem State iconic, but I always thought it looked like a...well you know. 

According to Channel 2, this year's potato will look different from what we've seen hanging from the crane in the past.  After analyzing community feedback, organizers have decided to create a new bedazzled potato shaped disco ball.  They'll use the traveling Famous Idaho Potato as a mold for the new potato and add an internal disco ball light box.

Organizers are using crowd funding to come up with the $60,000 it costs to make the new "Glowtato."  Backers will be rewarded for their various levels of donations.  Those incentives include everything from t-shirts, hoodies and Spuddy Buddy beanies to VIP access to the NYE Potato Drop.
