Watch 4000 People Silently Stage An Olympic-Sized Water Gun Fight

If you’re not big into the Olympics because track and field just doesn’t get you going, infamous pranksters Improv Everywhere have a nice alternative for you. Its latest MP3 experiment takes on the Olympic Games in a characteristically bewildering style.

Over 4000 participants showed up at New York City’s Governor’s Island on July 15 to participate in this year’s MP3 experiment, the ninth of its kind. Donning headphones and simultaneously taking commands from the same pre-recorded omnipotent voice, pseudo-Olympians took part in several ridiculous games, which included implements like bed sheets and water marksmanship.

The Improve Everywhere Games may not have had their own torch or medals, but they were on tape-delay. And that’s how the professionals do it, right? [YouTube]
