Chicken attacks penguin in a furry fight on SoCo! [VIDEO]

2010 August 5

Today is First Thursday on South Congress-and what in my InBox this morn should appear, but a funny viral video about a fight on SoCo with folks in mascot gear. Yup, a reader sent in a new video from Austin director Marko Slavnic. And I have to say, I kinda like it.

The video, shot on SoCo, involves two mascots (one a chicken, the other a penguin) fighting to get customers into neighboring sandwich shops.  The mascots come to fisticuffs that lead to a surprise unmasking. It’s a cute video-and seeing how the facade of New Bohemia was converted into the two sandwich shots is a def bonus! Check it out:

And while you’re down on South Congress this evening, head over to Jo’s Coffee, where our friends from South Side Sanctuary and Sneak Attack will be hawking their wears and kicks. There will also be a live performance from frenzy-inducing Austin band Soul Mind. Oh yeah, and a bouncy castle!!!
