Indiana Jones In Real Life – Movies In Real Life (Episode 2)
We recreated the famous boulder chase scene from Indiana Jones and Raiders of the Lost Ark in New York’s Central Park. A man dressed as Indiana Jones ran through the park with the golden idol as he was chased by a man in an enormous custom-built boulder costume. The chase started in Central Park’s Ramble, a wooded area that resembles the location from the film. The chase continued through more populated parts of the park, surprising tourists and sun-bathing New Yorkers alike. The project ended with Indy attempting to return the idol to the American Museum of Natural History.
Pumpkin Zombies have taken over the world because of a strange new virus. We are one of the few survivors left. But no Zombie Body will go left unused.
