Revolutionary Water Gun Battle

Remember the water gun battle in Boston we told you about a couple of weeks ago? It happened this Saturday and Nick Carlisle wrote in with a report:

On Saturday, we (Banditos Misteriosos) hosted a Revolutionary War re-enactment…with water guns and bubbles. We had probably about 300 people, separated into two teams: the “Redcoats” and the “Colonists.”

We marched from two different locations and met up to douse each other in water on the Charles River Esplanade. People of all ages took part.

I put a quick video together (as I’m sure you can surmise, filming in the midst of hundreds of people with water guns can be risky, but I couldn’t resist).

The bubbles were meant to be a “peacetime cease-fire” (of course it didn’t work, the “troops” re-engaged and resumed battle within a couple of minutes — word has it that many people dipped their water guns into the Charles River to re-load during this time.)

Finger Gun Fight

Mission:Singapore recently staged a finger gun fight in a bomb shelter in downtown Singapore.

They write:

Recently, our agents were spoted rollling and thumbling on the floor, pointing fingers at each other and Yelling BANG!

We all gathered at the bank of the Singapore River as more and more agent stream in from nearest metro station. The Sky wasn’t at all blue and the wind wasn’t really breezy either, instead, we had strong wind and dark grey storm clouds. We were really all hoping that the rain would not fall but then it did.

So the location was shifted to an underground bomb shelter. Yes a bomb shelter, we have plenty of that in Singpaore and this particular one that we have picked for the mission is open to the public.

This mission was probably inspired by the so-called “Banned Xbox Commercial” that has been on Youtube for a couple of years (below.) Either way, it’s nice to see someone actually doing it in the real world, as I’m sure the Xbox shoot was a closed set.

Boston’s Banditos Misteriosos is organizing a water gun battle with a Revolutionary War theme. It will take place on Saturday, August 16, and you can sign up for it on their site.
