For our latest mission, we staged an unannounced running of the bulls at the Venice Beach boardwalk with ridiculous, 7ft tall inflatable bull costumes. Runners dressed in white clothes and red bandanas appeared suddenly on the boardwalk, running for their lives from the giant bulls through crowds of unsuspecting Venice Beach locals. The runners were led by Guillermo Rodriguez from Jimmy Kimmel Live! and the soundtrack was written and performed by Reggie Watts.
Enjoy the video first and then go behind the scenes with our mission report and photos below.
