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.

That is absolutely awesome. What a crazy amount of work for such a short prank.
did they make that on the clock tho? :-)
Not really... the article says they normally have the Lego car parked in the main lot.
Saw that when Legoland put it on their FB page the other day...very cool prank!
(Yes, I'm a friend of Legoland....but for some reason, not yet a friend of Jerry's)... ;~)Last edited by rollergator, Wednesday, June 22, 2011 2:06 PM
Oh. Guess it pays to read the full article. Still cool though.
You all are not my friend... Don't forget that! ha.
I'm your friend, Jay - Err Jerry.
This is awesome. Love it.

I've seen a Lego car before. I forget where though.
This was staged by marketing to go viral. The car is normally in the park near the car attractions. Volvo is a major sponsor.Last edited by janfrederick, Friday, June 24, 2011 12:16 PM
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?
