Welcome to Hollyweed!

Those living close to Hollywood woke up to a crazy surprise. A prankster decided to change the famous sign to read “Hollyweed.”

According to ABC 7:

The sign was vandalized about 3 a.m. by a male suspect who was recorded on surveillance video, said Lt. Guy Juneau of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Security Services Division.

Dressed in all black, the unidentified vandal scaled Mount Lee, made his way over a fence and then climbed onto each of the landmark’s “O” letters, the lieutenant said. He then draped those letters with black tarps so they each appeared as a lowercase “e.”

Law officials are looking for the person responsible for the change, who could be facing a charge of trespassing.

All in all, it’s a funny way to start off the New Year. It has since been changed back to its original form.
