Elaborate Minecraft Figures Mysteriously Disappear From New Bedford’s South End [VIDEO]
I have so many questions for whoever built the giant Minecraft "crafts" in New Bedford.
Around 3 p.m. Tuesday, a couple of oversized figures from the popular video game -- and a duck-dog, for lack of a better description -- were spotted on East Rodney French Boulevard between South End Beach and Fort Taber.
Apparently, the structures weren't empty. They were costumes with people inside, as spectators noticed shoes beneath the mobile structures.
"They were awesome. I wish I knew who did all that because they did an amazing job," Chelsea Clarkson told Fun 107. "My kids loved it and so many other people stopped, too."
Talk about strategy.
The figures posted up right as Taylor Elementary was released for the day. As presumed, the kids went nuts over the trendy video game character that has swept the nation and beyond.
"The talent and time that went into those were insane," Clarkson said. "I don’t know how long they were there for, but there were people literally inside of them. It moved around. It was wild."
Unfortunately, as I went to investigate, the Minecraft figures were already gone and it was too late for an interview.
All I know is whoever was behind this creative project, kudos to them for the impressive details.
If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of the Minecraft people, please reach out to Gazelle@Fun107.com so I can give recognition where it's deserved. It's not every day you see something like this in New Bedford, but I'm also not surprised.
