The Worldwide Pillow Fight
happened from Huntsville, Alabama
to Budapest, Hungary
to Beijing, China
on March 22, 2008.
“Humanity has advanced,
when it has advanced,
not because it has been sober,
responsible, and cautious,
but because it has been playful,
rebellious, and immature.”
– Tom Robbins,
Still Life With Woodpecker
The pillow fight is coordinated by
whose goal is to redefine public space and
“free it from the endless creep of advertising.”
The group hopes to become
a significant part of pop culture
and get people away from passive
activities like watching television.
Some animal rights groups objected
to the use of goose and duck down pillows.
