This scrund is related to Hollywood. I had it when I was young - maybe until I was 11 or 12. I guess I could have got rid of it earlier, but I ignored some really obvious signs.

aww, poor doriana kitteh...

has it got anything to do with the fact that Hollywood is in California? with Hollywood's geographical location at all?

or is it relevant that California is where many of Hollywood's films are shot, even when they're not set there?

Did you think that the sign was part of the landscaping? Was CGI? Was smaller than actual size? Bigger?

Did you think that Hollywood wasn't the only place to have such a sign? That California cities regularly had such signs to proclaim where you were? American cities in general?

CGI = Computer Generated Imagery, like most film special effects nowadays.

Did you think that Hollywood wasn't the only place to have such a sign? no That California cities regularly had such signs to proclaim where you were? no American cities in general? no, but that would be a nice scrund, too.

I think I've had lots of US-related scrunds so far, maybe I can make another puzzle out of them.

Did you think the sign was much bigger? Mountain-sized? The size of the city?

Did you think that the HOLLYWOOD sign was the city itself? YES! *blushes*

********SPOILER********
As a child, I used to think that the movie studios were located in the letters. When I found out that Hollywood is also a city and that lots of celebrities live there, I thought they had created streets, houses, shops etc. in there too. Even photos of Hollywood couldn't really convince me, but one day, plain logic defeated my childish imagination.


Congrats to Balin for the solve! (:

Good one!

But you have to admit, if the sign were the city, it would be really cool. =)

Definitely! Hollywood became a lot less awesome when I discovered the truth (;
