Hacked Sign Warns San Franciscans Of 'Godzilla Attack'

A Bay Area prankster hacked a mobile road sign to warn motorists of an imminent Godzilla attack.

According to CBS San Francisco, a sign reading "Godzilla Attack - Turn Back" was spotted on Van Ness Avenue on Wednesday night. It's since been restored to display its intended message -- warning drivers of potential traffic delays during Sunday's Bay to Breakers foot race.

In the latest Godzilla movie, which comes out Friday, the reptilian behemoth makes a huge mess of San Francisco. Some Twitter users speculated that the prank was a promotional stunt for the movie.

The U.S. Air Force believes it could stop an assault by Godzilla.

However, government agencies have proven incapable of preventing tampering with road signs. In the past, people have hacked them to warn drivers of zombies and various other made-up hazards.

Earlier this week, a road sign in New Jersey was altered to read "Assville next left," referring to the Jersey Shore.
