For our latest mission, we staged a pirate invasion on the Central Park Lake, converting a rowboat rental into a pirate ship. Actors dressed as pirates from Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean attraction set sail on the lake, searching for the keys to their treasure chest. The pirates interrogated the New Yorkers and tourists on other rowboats and by the shore, much to their delight.

Enjoy the video first and then go behind the scenes with our mission report and photos.

Enjoy the video above first, and then go behind the scenes with our photos below. We’d like to thank the BEAT Festival for hosting the event this year.

The event also happened on the same day in several other cities around the world, including Boston and Jacksonville. Watch the video first, and then check out the photos and report below.
