Are Death Eaters Invading Kentucky?
A clever hacker in Lexington, Kentucky hacked into a construction road sign to warn Muggles that Death Eaters were on the rampage.
The sign was set to rotate two messages: “DEATH EATERS AHEAD,” and “MUGGLES BEWARE.”
You could easily theorize that this was a bit of viral marketing for the final Harry Potter movie, The Deathly Hallows, Part 2, which arrived in theaters at midnight on Wednesday — right about the same time that the road sign was hacked. But nope, this was a real instance of geek hacking.
Either that, or the Ministry of Magic was in Kentucky last night. The sign has since been returned to normal by Department of Transportation officials. Show of hands: who wishes they’d left it with the Potter-ized message?
