On Saturday, April 2, people in cities around the globe grabbed their pillows and took the streets for the pillow fight heard ’round the world. The pillow fight was organized by a local chapter of the Urban Playground Movement, a group which strives to facilitate “free, fun, all ages, public events… from a massive Mobile Clubbing event in a London train station to a giant pillow fight near the Eiffel Tower in Paris to a subway party beneath the streets of Toronto.”
The pillow fight in Chicago began at 2pm at the Tribune Tower Plaza. The rules were as follows:
#1 – The first rule of Pillow Fight Club is, you tell everyone you know about Pillow Fight Club.
#2 – The second rule of Fight Club is, you tell EVERYONE you know about Pillow Fight Club.
#3 – If someone says stop, goes limp, taps out, the fight is over.
#4 – Thousands of guys and girls to a fight.
#5 – Thousands of fights at a time.
#6 – Shirts, shoes, dresses, gorilla suits, chaps, whatever the hell you want to wear is your own prerogative
#7 – Fights will go on as long as they have to.
#8 – If this is your first night at Pillow Fight Club, you have to fight.
