I think I'll pass. Tired of everything needing to be an over-the-top extreeeeeeeeme thing that needs to be full of energy drinks and exaggeration.

Don't worry I think only a handful of paintballs got shot! I meen check out 0.48 (no hoppers) and 1.17 (no hits) the rest is just dry firing, it's a shame as his other videos are awesome. Just my two pence.

While it looked fun as hell, and was probably a blast to film, what was the point?

Was it just "how much cool sh*t can we stuff into a 2-minute video"? A promotional video for the next extreeeem sport? A commercial for a local paintball field?

Throw in a couple of small explosions and it'd look like one of Michael Bay's early home movies.

Doc.

He takes a theme, and builds on it. The later ones tend to be bigger, and cooler than the previous ones. Have a look through his previous videos. The point is, is that he could do it, and did it.

Just for the over the top random stunts and scenes in it.
I mean, it's not hard to see it's completely set up and they're firing at nothing half the time... It's just meant to be fun.

Or one of his current ones, for that matter.
I think the 'coolness' factor of this was rather severely cut into by the fact that many of those guys looked to be sporting the distincively orange 'Snooki' roll-on tans, not natural ones...

The park is my church, the break my prayer. In those moments I find true peace, the tragedies of every day life slip back. I find my zen, my quiet place in the sun. My clenched soul relaxes enough to breathe.
