Prankster Turns "Hollywood" Sign Into "Hollyweed"

January 1, 2017

New year, new Hollywood. Welcome to "Hollyweed."

Sometime on New Year's Eve or early New Year's Day, someone used a tarp to change the O's into E's on the iconic Hollywood sign.

Police are already investigating the prank, and according to TMZ, they have access to surveillance video showing one man acting alone.

The joke might've been inspired by California's recent legalization of recreational marijuana, so the prankster gets points for timing, but not for originality: The same "Hollyweed" prank was carried out on Jan. 1, 1976.
