The I-405 is officially liberated and Carmageddon turned out to be CarmaHeaven once again. The speculation and wonderment kept the Twittersphere abuzz all weekend – everyone and their grandmothers tweeted about the phenomenon. We thought it would be fun to round-up the Twitter chatter from famous people (do they drive?). As last year, there seems to be two camps: those enjoying the unique phenomenon and those taking it with a grain of salt. The latter brought out the funnies.
Where do you stand? What did you do this weekend? Let us know — if you’re on Twitter, use the hashtag #CarmageddonII.
These famous folks soaked up the CarmaHeaven weekend.
Carmageddon can’t stop us! Loving all the positive energy at the Rose Bowl today! #jennycraig #HeartWalkLA

This one scares me a little. GWAR + Carmageddon, hmm?
I think everybody in SOCA should get over to # Carmageddon II immediately…bring coolers, beer, etc. it's party time!

Doubters, and Meh?
Homer Simpson said Bart and Lisa are his Carmageddon.
I don’t know what Los Angeles is complaining about. Every time Bart and Lisa are in the back seat together it’s Carmageddon.

Olivia Munn was not impressed. Believe you, me Olivia, it was real.
When LA News warns over&over to "Prepare for Carmageddon 2!!!" Do they mean "Drive normally bc like last year, this wasn't even real."?

Lena Dunham was curious, but not really.
What IS Carmageddon? (Just to be clear, I don't actually want to know.)

Andy Richter was riveted by the news coverage. Andy, you’ve offended concrete and rebar.
Fascinating "carmageddon 2" coverage, news guys! Concrete and rebar? WOW!

Tom Bergeron was undecided. Tom, we’re gonna go with Blue Lagoon.
As sequels go, I can't decide if Carmageddon 2 is more "The Empire Strikes Back" or "Return to the Blue Lagoon."

Jillian Barbarie got home fast!
So much for Carmageddon 2. I flew into Beverly Hills faster than I ever have before from the valley. I hate when the news over hypes.

Khloe Kardashian thought the 405 traffic was ‘cray cray’
