Iconic Hollywood Sign Gets Hollyweed Transformation in Epic Prank

2 January 2017 11:44 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

2016 was not the best of years for a lot of people, who were eagerly awaiting the ringing in of the year 2017 this weekend. For those who live in Hollywood, California, the year started on a rather humorous note, thanks to a lone prankster. At around 3 Am Pt on New Year's Day, someone turned the iconic Hollywood sign into "Hollyweed," which many Los Angelenos woke up to before it was changed back to Hollylwood later that day.

The Los Angeles Times reports that security footage from Mount Lee showed a "lone individual" scaling the mountain in "black, tactical-style gear." He scaled the sign's ladders, carrying four tarpaulins, which he used to change the two O's in Hollywood to lowercase E's. Sgt. Guy Juneau of the Los Angeles Police Department's Security Services division said that this could have been either a New Year's prank, or the work of a "thrill-seeker."
