It was an embarassing day for Legendary Pictures, the entertainment company behind the upcoming Godzilla reboot. Founder and CEO Thomas Tull was arrested on vandalism charges after the company spray painted an entire warehouse with graffiti advertising the 2014 release of Godzilla. The graffiti coincides with San Diego Comic Con, which is happening in a few weeks, and is sure to garner a lot of attention for the film, even if that attention is mostly negative.
"Yeeaaaaah booooyyyyyyyy," shouted a defiant Tull, wearing a backwards baseball cap and loose, sagging jeans as he was taken into police custody.
The city of San Diego is looking into cleaning up the graffiti, and early estimates suggest that it could take thousands of dollars to undo the damage Legendary did to the historic San Diego building and picturesque landscape.
"We keep telling these kids, crime doesn't pay," said McGruff, San Diego's Chief of Police and a large talking dog. "But they just never learn. It's a culture thing with these kids and their hip hop and their graffiti and their MySpace pages."
"I'm gonna have to take a bite out of a motherfucker," McGruff added menacingly.
"Come at me, dawg," said Tull in a prerecorded statement released by Legendary this morning. The statement was sent to press outlets along with a photograph of Tull grabbing his crotch and giving the middle finger to the camera.
Rumors that Legendary is also planning to have a giant animatronic lizard rise from the ocean behind the convention center are being circulated by subversive Hollywood rumor website Latino-Review, but experts put the chances of these being true at "close to zero" based on the lack of credibility for lead reporter and crazed, paranoid lunatic El Mayimbe.
