转眼已经是2017年,不知道洛杉矶的小伙伴们新年前夜是否发现,著名的好莱坞地标“Hollywood”标志竟然变成了“Hollyweed”!

The iconic Hollywood sign in Los Angeles was vandalized at some point during New Year’s Eve to read “Hollyweed,” kicking off 2017 with a prank.

作为全球最著名的地标之一,“Hollywood”标志常常成为人们恶搞的目标,但这次的“改头换面”被认为是最为招摇的一次尝试。

As one of the most recognizable landmarks in the world, the popular sign is often targeted by vandals, but officials told us this was one of the most “ambitious” efforts they’ve seen in a long time.

 

这次恶搞最开始在上周的早上被人发现,洛杉矶警局随后介入调查。与此同时,人们当然也迫不及待地和这个最新的标志牌照。

The vandalism was noticed early Sunday morning, and the Los Angeles Police Department has been contacted to investigate.

In the meantime, however, people were sure to take a picture of the new “Hollyweed” sign.

 

这并不是“Hollywood”标志第一次被篡改成“Hollyweed”,在1976年的时候也曾发生过同样的情况。目前我们还不知道到底这次恶作剧的主使人是谁,但大麻的确刚刚在去年11月被加州官方认定为合法。

It’s not the first time that the sign has been changed to read “Hollyweed,”  and the sign was made to read “Hollyweed” back in 1976.

It was not clear who was behind the “prank,” but recreational pot use was just approved by California voters in November.

经过了一天的等待,新年第一天的上午10:45,标志已经恢复了正常。

By 10:45 a.m., the sign appeared to have been changed back to its original status.
