We’ve all seen (and cringed at) them as we get off the freeway onto Gaffey Street: those eyesore homemade signs — usually spray painted on plywood or a bed sheet — publicly wishing happy birthdays, memorializing the dead, or even asking someone out to prom. For years, the San Pedro tradition elicited stares and complaints.

Alas, the occasional birthday wish still managed to appear, including one just recently.

It’s days were numbered, however. In a video posted on Wednesday, Councilman Joe Buscaino’s Communications Director Branimir Kvartuc decided to take matters into his own hands and take down the sign, encouraging residents to do the same and filming the entire thing. Have a look at the video below:
