The Hollywood Sign Transformations and Pranks

On New Years 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.

Britney Spears went with a group of her dancers to Jimmy Kimmel's house in the dead of night to wake him up. 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.

Sam Pepper has become a very controversial figure in the last few years. He is famous for his Youtube pranks and "social experiments" such as the one where he pinched random women's bottoms that led to sexual harassment claims.  You may have heard of him recently due to massive backlash from his "prank" video where he convinced a friend that he killed his other friend "execution style". Now he seems to have disappeared off the face of the internet leaving only a single Tweet on an otherwise barren Twitter account.

Some people have questioned his motives with the way he left social media and Youtube so abruptly.

But, for the most part, they are just gleefully celebrating his absence.

In October, Josh James of Jupiter, FL threw a three and a half foot alligator into the drive through window of a local Wendey's restaurant. The authorities finally caught up with him and he has been arrested because apparently you're not allowed to go around town slinging large, dangerous reptiles at people.

Why would someone throw a three and a half foot alligator into a fast food restaurant? His mother told WPTV, "He's a prankster.  He does stuff like this because he thinks it's funny".

You may remember hearing the name "Sam Pepper" last year attached to a story about women accusing him of ** after his butt pinching prank/"social experiment" went viral for all the wrong reasons. The video, which was removed by YouTube, showed Pepper groping women with a fake hand in the name of a prank, which he later called a social experiment. Following the video, several teenaged women came forward to share their stories of sexual abuse at the hands of Pepper.

A little over a year has passed since these allegations surfaced, and Pepper is perhaps hoping we've all forgotten that he's a terrible person. Unfortunately for him, that's not the case.

His latest video, a prank involving a young man being "murdered" in front of his best friend, is incredibly hard to watch. The victim can be heard saying "I don't understand, we're just kids from Kansas.... You've got the wrong guys! He's everything I have" just before he sees his best friend get shot right in front of him. The pranksters let the victim of the prank scream and cry for more than half a minute before revealing that it was all a joke. In the video outro, everyone seems to be in pretty good spirits about the prank, but viewers don't feel the same way:




What do you think, has Sam Pepper once again taken things too far? Or did you find the prank funny?

An Irish dude named Ollie was able to trick his friend into texting a girl named "Rachel" for nearly two days, even setting up plans to "Netflix and Chill."

His bud had met Rachel on Halloween night and went home with her. But she never texted back.

She had finally reached out, he thought. WRONG.

It was just Ollie.

Aren't friends just great?

He didn't get it.

"Last time I asked if we could go on a date when I came to auburn you told me to go f*ck myself."

Prank of The Day: Bros Hold Fake Funeral For Bud Who Spends Too Much Time With His Girlfriend

These bros are dedicated.

After noticing that their buddy, 20-year-old Keiran Cable, had been missing ever since he started dating his girlfriend—they knew that something had to be done.

So the group of 50 footballers from Wales decided to do what any reasonable group of young men would do. They organized a fake funeral to say goodbye to their beloved friend.

The funeral took place at a local pub and included everything a good funeral must have: service leaflets, a coffin, funeral procession and time for friends to read their special memories.

"I was in complete shock and didn't know what to do or say. My cheeks were aching from smiling so much. The boys made a massive effort and it was definitely a day to remember," Cable said.

Tumblr user Obvious Plant (aka Jeff Wysaski/PleatedJeans) is known for conducting some pretty clever pranks in which he “plants” fake signs around shops and other public spots around L.A.

One that recently got a lot of attention involved him placing some fake self-help books like “So You’re Son is a Centaur” among real books at a store in West Hollywood.

He’s also trolled a wine shop with some custom recommendations.

For his latest stunt, Wysaski stopped by a local pet shop and added a few of his own descriptions to some of the animals’ tanks and cages.

“Sometimes, you’ve just got to take it into your own hands to expand a store’s product line,” he writes.

These included everything from Guy Fieri hamsters and baby Godzillas to invisible fish and judgmental tree frogs.

Here are a few below, but you can check out the full set and more of his work on his Tumblr.

Anti-gay protesters were picketing outside the Carolina Rebellion rock festival at the Charlotte Motor Speedway earlier this month, so one of the attendees decided to pull a clever little prank on them.

The concert goer noticed that the website they were promoting on their signs, WarningsofWrath.com, had expired, so he/she purchased the domain.

The prankster then redirected it to an extremely WARNING gay pr0n site called “ScaryF-ckers.com.”

This isn’t exactly in line with their message, but it’s sure to spark some wrath among the group.

A “pastor” with “Warnings of Wrath” has a Blogger account with a post that explains the meaning behind their name, and that page also currently includes a link to the pr0n site.

Hijacking domains as a form of protest has been happening a lot lately, particularly with theRepublican presidential candidates who failed to secure all of their domains before announcing their candidacy.

Google is celebrating April Fool’s Day a little early.

A new option on Google Maps lets you turn the world into a playable game of Pac-Man.

From the support page:

Welcome, Player 1! You can now play the classic arcade game PAC-MAN in Google Maps with streets as your maze. Avoid Blinky, Pinky, Inky, (and Clyde!) as you swerve the streets of some famous places around the world. But eat the pac-dots fast, because this game will only be around for a little while.

You can plan anywhere with enough streets by clicking the icon in the bottom left corner of the screen, but Google also offers some clues to the best locations where a special Pac-Man marker has already been place.

  • Don’t drop the ball on the eve of your victory!
  • Triumph is délicieux.
  • Does a Galaxian bonus await at the top of those 272 steps?
  • Chomp your way to independence down seven lanes of July.
  • PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN can’t agree on which side is prettier: the American or the Canadian. Which side do you fall on, eh?
  • After a chat with the Sphinx, PAC-MAN sounds more like “Dokki Dokki”.
  • Pause game play to admire Chagall’s stained glass windows and have a bit of chocolate.
  • Can you score 10^(10^100) points?
  • Whether they’re flashing blue or sporting their natural colors, Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde are always kakkoii. Even Vogue agrees they’re living in the trendiest of neighborhoods.
  • Previous PAC-MAN lives don’t get to rest in a white marble mausoleum.
  • Head to the valley of the sun and earn your grade in the art of the game.
  • How well can you navigate the radiating streets of the distrito federal?
  • Victory is like gothic glockenspiel musik to our ears.
  • Pay special attention to Blinky – he might blend in with the dreaming red kangaroos!
  • You’ll find the Beach PAC-MAN World Cup here before long.

You can expect the entire Internet to be flooded with April Fool’s Day pranks like this on Wednesday.

It says the game will only be available for a limited time, but hopefully they decide to keep the Pac-Man hack as a permanent option.

It’s like the new movie “Pixels,” only in real life.
