Morning distraction

5 Jun

There’s a lesson in all this.

It’s the Robotoki video game developer studio in Los Angeles where an employee accidentally hits their security system’s “armed threat” panic button.

The office just happened to have a life-sized statue of the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 character Simon “Ghost” Riley on display by the entrance, armed with a menacing-looking mock assault rifle.

LAPD arrives in force.

Seeing the gun-wielding figure, they immediately stormed the building in a tense 15-minute standoff.

After realizing it wasn’t moving because it wasn’t real, officers left the building while laughing at the absurd incident.

Everybody at Robotoki was quite embarrassed – as they should be.
