John Harvard as Master Chief?

I'm not a big video-game guy, but as some may have heard, Microsoft's blockbuster Halo 3 released yesterday. (See Seattle Times review here.)

The following did catch my attention, however: Those MIT Beavers are up to their crazy antics again, this time dressing up Harvard's venerable John Harvard Statue in the guide of Halo's Master Chief.

In recognition of the release of Halo 3, a highly anticipated video game by Microsoft and Bungie, MIT hackers adorned the John P. Harvard statue, in Harvard Yard, with a Spartan helmet. The back of the helmet, which is worn by the protagonist of the game, Master Chief, was labeled with “Master Chief in Training.” The statue was decorated with an assault rifle (bullet count of 2E), as well as a Beaver emblem on the right shoulder.

Well done.
