Just another wacky day in Venice Beach

I was walking along the infamous stretch of head shops and happen to stumble upon this spectacle. Tons of spectators gathered as these dudes lifted a cross-legged plastic man into the back of a convertible. Classic.

I was completely bewildered by this bizarre procession. Was I in Venice Beach? Was I on the planet earth?

Definitely fit for a caption contest of sorts.
