Ten orloj je teda pěkně divný nanuk. - (Wow.) This clock is a pretty funny/weird popsicle.

It is an advertisement seen at Brno streetcar/tram stops. They are probably referring to this. What caught my attention is the use of pěkně, "pretty", adverb form of pěkný. It works the same way as pretty before an adjective in (American) English. I can't think of any other language that allows this adverbial use of pretty.
