If you haven't heard of the worldwide phenomenon known as International Pillow Fight Day, prepare to be amazed. One genius individual captured his view of the madness and turned it into a slow-motion art piece (above). We have to admit, it's pretty beautiful.
The concept of International Pillow Fight Day? Hundreds of people meet in parks around the world to revisit their childhood memories and smack each other around with pillows. It's awesome.
So gather your best pals and start practicing your pillow fighting skills (skillz) for next year's epic battle. Scroll through snaps of this year's festivities to get in the training mindset below.
Some aggressive pillow fighting went down outside the Washington Monument, making our founding fathers proud.

Last but not least, it's not a party if New York isn't invited. Washington Square Park was the place to be on #InternationalPillowFightDay!
