As one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world, the popular sign is often targeted by vandals. But officials told BuzzFeed News this was one of the most “ambitious” efforts they’ve seen in a long time.
“This is a little more ambitious” said Betsy Isroelit, spokeswoman for the Hollywood Sign Trust, the organization that helps maintain the sign.
In the meantime, however, people were sure to take a picture of the new “Hollyweed” sign.
