Nerf Sword Fight

by Jonathan Moxness

This video was shot one lovely Sunday afternoon (that was far too nice to be spending it inside) at the residence of Jeffrey Olynek. I wanted to shoot a video using the awesome foam swords (and axe) that Nerf came out with, and thought…wouldn’t it be great if these foam weapons were as dangerous as real ones? So this is what we came up with!
