Two people each wearing a pig face mask targeted two teenage Pokémon GO players in Sweden Friday, screaming and shining a green laser pointer at the gamers. As if that wasn't startling enough, afterward the mask-wearing duo started a traffic jam by having sex on a roadside water wheel.
It all began when two siblings took a stroll to look for Pokémon. “Where’s that Pikachu at?” they may have been thinking. But instead of a cute little monster to digitally capture, they encountered the unusual duo.
The teens' mother later described the situation to the police and then the local paper.
“They wore rubber masks depicting pigs’ heads and they started screaming and waving a green laser,” she said. The laser hit one of the teenagers in the face, prompting them to book it back home, catching Pokémon be damned.
The masked pigs, who also wore separate shirts that read “King” and “Queen” apparently then ran off to a different part of the 2,000 person village, Insjön, in central Sweden, where they offered motorists a bit of a peep show as the two as they had sex near the road.
As a result, traffic backed up on the highway with rubberneckers slowing down to catch a glimpse of the couple. Others, reportedly, actually got out of their vehicles to take a gander at the activities.
The couple, if caught, could face sexual harassment charges and a police officer said that they were concerned about the alleged laser attack. They weren’t quite as upset with the traffic jam itself.
This isn’t the first time that Pokémon GO players have been surprised by strangers while catching Pokémon. The game has led some criminals to use the app as a trap that they lure victims into.
