Oh God, April 25th Is Now Officially 'La La Land' Day In L.A.
Good news for Angelenos who are somehow not yet sick of talking about La La Land: Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has officially declared April 25th to be "La La Land Day" in Los Angeles, the LA Times reports.
La La Land Day will involve a public dedication ceremony on the steps of L.A. City Hall, starting at 8:30am on Tuesday, April 25, the day the film comes out on DVD and Blu-Ray. Garcetti himself is slated to speak at the ceremony, which will feature aerial dancers, a jazz band (of course) and cameos from director Damien Chazelle and composer Justin Hurwitz.
It's tempting to wonder whether we really need an official day to commemorate La La Land; after all, the film is already such a beloved cultural institution that expressing even mild dislike of it is practically worthy of criminal investigation (as evidenced in the SNL clip below).
Then again, after the whole Oscar-night debacle, maybe La La Land has earned its very own day. Kind of like in elementary school, when you'd lose a baseball game and your mom would take you out for ice cream.
