On New Year's Day, residents woke up to see that the famous "Hollywood" sign had fallen victim to a prank overnight.
But this wasn't the first time the Hollywood sign has fallen victim to a prank or been altered. Here's a quick list of the changes the sign has seen since its creation.

We’re off to a great start.

The first, only, and by default, best public prank of 2017 is here. Around 3:30 am on New Year’s day, someone snuck up to the Hollywood sign, threw several carefully cut tarps over the two Os so that they would look like Es, and disappeared, like a ninja in a cloud of smoke. The sign read “Hollyweed" until 12:30pm, when Stacy Isroelit, a spokeswoman for the Hollywood Sign Trust said that the tarps would be taken down.

The New York Times reported that the prank may be referencing new legislation for legalized recreational marijuana use, but Isroelit said, “It looks more like a New Year’s Eve prank.”

The suspect is still at large. Who knows if they’ll attack other American icons, like putting a joint in Teddy Roosevelt's mouth on Mount Rushmore or making the Statue of Liberty’s torch look like a bong. You know, other weed stuff.

Celebrities and cartoon characters are attempting to distance themselves form the crime.

Whoever did it, thank you for getting this year off on the right foot.

Everyone knows at Burger King, they serve burgers “your way,” but this Halloween, they’re serving them roasted, leaving the competition burnt to a crisp.

A Burger King in Queens, NY got really into the Halloween spirit this year, throwing a white tarp over the building and dressing it up as the ghost of McDonald’s. Rest assured, the location cleared things up on their marquee, which read, “BOOOOO! Just kidding, we still flame grill our burgers. Happy Halloween.” They even scrawled "McDonald's" on their food containters. Needless to say, it was a real fright to an already brave customer-base looking to get their Whopperito on.

For a company that sells cheeto-dusted chicken fingers and has this creep as their mascot, Burger King really has the weird fast-food marketing department on lock.

Actually, creepy mascots are kind of both of their M.O. I direct your attention to Exhibit A, a gif of a couple of Grimace Grandmas rubbing Ronald McDonald's head. Yikes.

The only question left: how will a combination Taco Bell/KFC respond?

Britney Spears went with a group of her dancers to Jimmy Kimmel's house in the dead of night to prank him. His reaction is priceless!

What is modern art, anyway? If you ask these open-minded gallery attendees, it could be just about anything. Maybe even something as simple as a regular pair of glasses placed on the floor by a nearby prankster.

A high school student took a yearbook photo prank too far when he exposed himself to the camera. Now he's facing prison and a lifelong label as a registered sex offender. People in the community support him. Many are questioning why this mistake wasn't caught by one of the many adults involved in taking the picture and preparing the yearbook before it went to print.

According to ABC7, a prank caller told a Burger King in Coon Rapids, Minnesota that they were from the fire department and that the employees needed to break all the windows to release "pressure" before the building exploded.
