The Punk Rock Pillow Fight takes place at Santos Party House in Brooklyn on December 15, and features a fighting ring made of mattresses where scrappers use plush pillows as weapons.
The 16-person pillow pounding goes down as live bands play music, including classic pump-up jams like Eye of the Tiger.
Creator Andrew Thompson invites everyone to compete and assures that the throw-down isnt as tough as it sounds.
He explains, You cant punch, head-butt, shove, or load pillows with rocks or shoes. The whole idea is to have fun.
However, if pillow fighters want to crush competitors, he suggests aiming for the legs because thats the first thing that gets weak after a few minutes of bouncing on a mattress.
Luckily though, if the pillow fighters get tired, they can take a nap on the mattresses which remain on the floor even after the match.
