Legoland California GM finds car replaced with Lego version

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Some fun-loving employees at Legoland California distracted the amusement park's general manager Monday morning long enough to replace his blue Volvo with a nearly identical model made from 200,000 Lego bricks. The general manager, Peter Ronchetti, discovered the switch when he walked out of his office building to go to lunch, said a park spokeswoman who watched and photographed the prank.

Not really... the article says they normally have the Lego car parked in the main lot.

This was staged by marketing to go viral. The car is normally in the park near the car attractions. Volvo is a major sponsor.

Most everything is staged these days.

I think your comment was staged;)

Who cares if it was staged? It's still an awesome prank. :)

They had the means, and with the Lego car in the shop for a refresh, they had the opportunity. Who cares if Marketing provided the motive?

You know how silly and fake reality TV is?

Real life is getting just as bad. ;)
