LOS ANGELES – The new year got off to a blazing start in Los Angeles. A los Angeles based prankster modernized in the first hours of 2017 the iconic Hollywood sign to make it read “Hollyweed” — a bit of high-minded hijinks that lit up social media as we just celebrated New year’s eve and everyone is still feeling a bit dizzy.
The vandal used tarps to change the O’s in the sign to E’s, and added a peace and love symbols on the altered letter.
“The 1st sun of 2017 rises over #Hollyweed…” Fox Sports 1 reporter Amanda Busick tweeted, adding, “whoever did this, bravo.”
“Shoutout to whoever took the time and effort to make the Hollywood sign say Hollyweed,” another Twitter user wrote.
