Harvard Statue Dressed Up as Master Chief
Some MIT students who were apparently really excited about Halo 3, decided to show their love for the game‘s hero by dressing up their rival school’s statue of John Harvard as Master Chief. They basically painted a helmet and assault rifle bronze and placed them on the statue during the night. The result looks like Master Chief waiting to sign the Declaration of Independence, right before he fought in the American Revolution to drive the British out of the thirteen colonies. Some little known history for you there, folks.
(Update: Edited for incorrect content. Apparently I misread this one before as saying that Harvard did this to their own statue. Instead this was some MIT students’ way of pranking Harvard. Yeah, that just makes this so much lamer; and it was already kind of lame. I mean, what are you supposed to say? “Woot, we got you guys! We dressed up your founder as a video game character. We’re WAY nerdier than you.” It’s kind of like saying, “Hey, I can punch myself in the face harder than you!” And then doing it.)
