We all are sure that 2016 was a very bad and unforgettable year. While everyone was sending goodbyes to the year, a couple decided to make something right and funny to end the year with a laugh. Someone changed Hollywood to Hollyweed.
Buzzfeed news got to the sinner and he is called Zack Fernandez. He told them that he was planning this couple of months before the new year and wanted to really do it so that the year would have something to remember of.
Although he would soon be caught be LAPD and would be sent to jail, but he believes what he did was just for entertainment purpose and a lot of people found it funny.
He also revealed that he got this idea from a similar incident of 1976 when a student, Daniel Finegood, changed the O’s with E’s for a project in which he got an A.
Zack revealed that he changed the sign of Hollywood to Hollyweed as an homage to Mr.Finegood and that he also wrote “A tribute to Mr.Finegood” on one of the O’s while on the other one, he wrote his Social Profile name, Jesushands.
It took him only 35$ and a couple of hours to do the stuff and he also stated the lack of security. He said that there wasn’t even a single guard guarding the sign.
He left the place at 5 AM before sunrise and he had no idea that it would be viral soon. Although he is overwhelmed with the number of eyes that caught the change.
The Police didn’t arrest anyone for lack of evidence and Zack was not arrested as of Tuesday.
He posted a picture on Instagram right after he did this prank.
Zack did this along with his former wife and said that they both don’t want to get caught because they have kids and they need to take care of them too.
