Flash Mob Pillow Fight in Union Square, New York City

2.2007.pillow fight. 062

Yesterday I participated in possibly one of the funniest things I've ever seen in my life - a flash mob pillow fight in Union Square, New York City. At 2 PM on Saturday February 24th a few hundred people gathered to have giant pillow fight in the middle of the city. Within minutes the sky was filled with feathers, and pretty much all you could see was white. It was essentially a giant mosh put, with you being unable to take a single step without getting hit from one angle or another. We lasted about 45 minutes before tiring out, but it was still going when we left. If you're around in the city for this next year, its worth coming to see, I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.
