Germany: Watch Berliners batter each other with pillows

Germany, Berlin
April 4, 2015 at 21:53 GMT +00:00 · Published

Hundreds of Berliners gathered in Berlin's Treptower Park Saturday, facing off each other in a huge pillow fight to mark the International Pillow Fight Day.

What originally started out as a flashmob seven years ago has turned into an annual event, where pillow fights take place in several cities across the globe, celebrating International Pillow Fight Day on the first Saturday of April. There are not many rules, except that participants should bring their own pillow and take it with them after the fight. Organisers also advised the fighters to not use pillows that contain feathers, as their removal from the birds can be "ethically questionable."
