Adam Sandler’s latest film ‘Pixels’ is currently filming in downtown Toronto. In order to disguise the Canadian city as New York City, several of the parking bylaw signs had to be removed temporarily from major city streets.

All “no parking” signs have been taken down from a section of Adelaide Street between Yonge St and York St., a section right in the middle of the downtown core.

Since the signs are temporarily absent, Toronto residents can technically take advantage by parking in areas they’re usually unable to.

According to Toronto traffic laws, all signs must be clearly posted in order for the bylaw to be enforced. Since the signs are not posted, motorists can park and leave their cars wherever they please.

‘Pixels’ stars Sandler, Kevin James, Josh Gad, and Peter Dinklage as a group of aliens who misinterpret classic arcade games as a declaration of war against them, according to Sony.
