Playboy lothario-honcho Hugh Hefner has saved the Hollywood sign from developers with a $900,000 grant to a conservation group.
“It’s like saying let’s build a house in the middle of Yellowstone Park,” the Hef waxed rhapsodically to the LA Times. “There are some things that are more important. The Hollywood sign represents the dreams of millions. It’s a symbol. It is as the Eiffel Tower is to Paris. It represents the movies.”
Of course, the money comes with the added catch that the OO’s be replaced with a pair of Playboy bunny tits, but c’est la vie, right? I mean we’re talking the Eiffel Tower of America here folks.
