Elaborate prank or do Los Angelenos really have a big case of hockey fever?
A giant shiny object that appears to be a huge replica of the Stanley Cup Trophy has been spotted sitting alongside the iconic Hollywood Sign by several people this week.
The LA Kings could make NHL history by sweeping the Stanley Cup Finals in game 4 against the New Jersey Devils at the Staples Center later today, making it the first time in 45 years they win the title.
The description posted with the YouTube video on June 1st reads:
“Went for a trip to LA today and saw this shiny object next to the Hollywood sign. I thought I’d get closer abnd quickly realized it’s a HUGE Stanley Cup. Who says LA isn’t a hockey town… look at it!!!”
Yes take a look in the video below:
CBS LA notes, “There’s no official word on what the shining object really was, and if it was a prank, no one has officially come forward to claim credit.”
In our hearts, we want to believe this is real. Make sure to take a good look at the Hollywood Sign next time you drive past.
