An African pillow fight

Here’s one of the weirdest thing I saw during my visit of The Gambia in West Africa: a pillow fight!

The game was held at the Gambia port during the Roots Festival in May. Two men sit face to face on a greasy pole above the water. After first minute of fighting, the game is put on hold because they forgot to decide on the rules first. At 0:47, the battle continues and in the end one of the guys is disqualified though nobody seems to understand why. At 2:00, two other pillow fighters start their game but both are so horribly terrified of falling into the water that it’s more of a pole dance than a pillow fight…
