If anyone’s been keeping up-to-date on their celebrity gossip, they should be well aware of the Hollywood sign debacle that’s graced websites and television since Ke$ha hijacked the Los Angeles landmark and declared it Ke$hawood yesterday. (Scandalous!) But alas, it was all a dream “ or a Youtube video that was doctored to make the well-orchestrated publicity stunt seem like the real-deal.
For those that haven’t seen the clip, Ke$ha and her friends drunkenly hike up to the monument, throw tarps over the letters and brand the city as the artist’s own “ making for one hell of a statement, and even more controversy.
But sadly, it was too good to be true, as a source has come forward to explain that not only would such hijinx be impossible (evidently, the sign is guarded around the clock), but the aesthetics of Ke$hawood don’t align with the landmark’s actual measurements. (I’d go into detail, but frankly, it’s Sunday morning, and that’s no time for technicalities.)
So behold the (new) ultimate publicity stunt: heavily edited Youtube videos that create a buzz surrounding an artist’s latest project. It’s almost as good as the Tom and Katie courtship circa the release of Batman in the early 2000’s. (Wait “ that was real?)
