Football star Matt Light scares people at Marriott Hotel with 'Courtyard Camera'

It went down at a Courtyard by Marriott hotel. Light was wheeled in as a "mannequin" for people to take pictures with. Cue the screams.

Hilarious, right? It's a clever ad -- and especially fitting for a company that has adopted the slogan "Make room for a little fun."
