Century City's 1% Mocks Occupy L.A. With Pumpkins

Halloween Pumpkins

The 1% is getting back at the Occupy movement... via pumpkins.

Now that I work in Century City, I sometimes notice a keen difference between the entertainment-heavy building I used to work in and the tower I now work in, which is heavily skewed toward legal and business firms. More employees in suits, for starters.

I encountered another contrast on Monday: Our building (formerly known as the MGM Tower, now "Constellation Place") held a Halloween pumpkin carving contest, just like the one that I chronicled every year at Wilshire Courtyard. Those pumpkins, from entertainment companies like E! and "Family Guy" did elaborate carving (see last year's Wilshire Courtyard pumpkins here) and stuck with pop culture themes.

In Century City, our building's pumpkin contest included two companies that used their pumpkins to mock Occupy Wall Street/Occupy LA. (Above, "Moccupy Wall Street" by BNY Mellon.)

UPDATE: We previously thought the pumpkin below also referenced Occupy Wall Street, given the tent, the pickets and the reference to "90%." But Barclay's Wealth says it's not -- so our apologies over the error.
