Some of those welts looked a little too nasty for 300 fps.

Either they were shooting hot like rental tippmanns tend to on co2 (harhar) or they took repeated shots to the same place, which is likely given the volume of paint that was shot. Repeate trauma to a specific location will do that.

I would have done that even without a reason.

*edit*

And of course, reading the youtube comments, I knew there was going to be one asshat complaining they should have just donated the money it cost to shoot all those paintballs.

21,000 paintballs equals roughly 10.5 cases.

Even at Dick's or Walmart prices of @ $35.00 a case, that expense of paint equates to roughly $500.00. This does not include the cost of the CO2 to run the guns.

$500.00 would go a long way to preventing these 21,000 children dying from "poverty" on that day.

I grew up in "poverty".

It didn't kill me.

I think GREED kills more children in a day than "poverty".

Think about it.

270,000 Youtube views, with each view presenting the viewer with an easy "click-to-donate" button can go a long way to preventing children from dying as well.

Since we're just talking about paintball costs at the moment and can briefly ignore the other costs involved in making the video, that works out to less than two cents spent per view. Compared to the traditional production/advertising costs for charities, this is amazingly frugal.

Finally, as the top comment in the video pointed out, if their channel, has adsense enabled, under standard Youtube monetization rates they've already made most of their money back.

The simple truth is, you've got to spend money if you want to raise money.

As they said in the comments. Paintballs were donated, guns were donated, CO2 was donated. Could they have just donated money? Probably but then 270,000 people would not have seen their message. If 1% of the people who watched the video donated a dollar then they still come out ahead.
