VIDEO: Burlington Pillow Fight Flash-Mob
The after work crowd flooding the Church St Marketplace Friday were treated to an unexpected show when a pillow fight erupted in front of the mall. A whistle signaled the start of the Burlington Pillow Fight Flash-Mob which was over as suddenly as it began.
Police arrested organizer Darin Cassler who was released later that day. Who knew pillows could cause so much trouble? In case you missed it, here is the video.
And if you care to see it from another angle, Geoff Golder posted this video.
The Facebook page promoting this event listed the rules as follows:
Bring a pillow and a container in which to conceal it. Assemble on the
street as if you were loitering, do not acknowledge anyone else
participating. Our host will shout 'pillow fight' and we will all
spontaneously break into a big miasma of feathers and pillows.
+ Soft pillows only!
+ Swing lightly, many people will be swinging at once.
+ Do not swing at people without pillows or with cameras.
+ Remove glasses beforehand!
+ The event is free and appropriate for all ages.
+ Wait until the signal to begin.
+ This event is more fun with feathers!
