Marines Use Nerf Guns In Video To Lampoon Government Shutdown

This new spot produced by a Marine Corps combat camera unit totally lampoons the government shutdown (and the sequester for that matter).

In it, the Marine Corps is feeling the pinch, so it’s time to sacrifice a few things. Rifles are switched for Nerf guns, their computers for Etch A Sketches, hot meals for cold, etc.

The video, titled “Adapt and Overcome,” was posted to a Facebook page as public and then blocked within an hour, so we’re not sure if it’s supposed to be for internal purposes, or if it’s been officially approved yet.
