I have a dream (it involves pirates)

Since high school I have had a vision of the ultimate pirate performance piece / urban prank. Imagine, if you will:

You’re sitting at a stop light, minding your own business. Suddenly a pickup truck pulls up next to you at the light. In the back of the pickup truck is an entire crew of pirates, minding their own business, acting for all the world like they belong there. You get a chuckle out of seeing an unexpected crew of pirates, maybe people start pointing.

Then it turns ugly.

A second pirate crew pulls up in a different pickup truck, flying a different pirate flag. Soon, a fight breaks out, complete with swashbuckling, boarding planks, and choreographed sword duels. Eventually everything is settled and the two trucks drive away as if this were the most normal thing in the world.

The closest I ever came to this was dressing up as a pirate and driving around with another pirate and a Jolly Roger in the back window. No sword fights though. No swashbuckling.

So, I think it’s time for the real deal. Who’s with me?

    I have also wanted this to happen for so long. I think you told me about it in high school (when you were in high school) and I have wanted to do it since. I think for my next birthday I will say no presents … just help me pull this off

  2. I just came across this on urban prankster, sort of along the same lines:

    Basically, they do a puppet show from the back of a pickup truck to entertain everybody stuck in traffic.
