The archdiocese is demanding damages from the Columbia Pictures company in Hollywood for showing the destruction of this famous landmark in the disaster movie that came out in 2009.

The students, all men between the ages of 18 and 20, were dressed in speedos, women’s wear, wizard costumes and a one even had a lifelike sex toy according to the local Sheriff.

Needless to say, they were rounded up by the police and ordered to leave.

It makes you wonder though, if this was Halloween and not Spring Break, would any action have actually been taken?
