It’s hard to say where true innovation comes from. What inspires change, action, or creativity?
Is it outrage? Is it ambition? Or is it simply a reaction to childish pranks on iconic landmarks?
As you may have noticed, the Hollywood sign got a little makeover recently, so those tall letters now read “Hollyweed.”
When pranksters turned the Hollywood sign into this masterpiece, they had to anticipate that it would soon get the meme treatment.
Within days, people were redoing the Hollywood sign to fit their own purposes.
Naturally, people wasted no time getting political.
