Video: Tomato Battle 2011 uses 300,000 lbs. of tomatoes for evil

First, imagine 300,000 lbs. of tomatoes. Now, imagine those tomatoes are overripe and mildly rotten. Now, imagine all of those tomatoes in a humongous pile at Copper Mountain and a crowd of people gathered for no other reason than to throw that third-of-a-million-pound heap of tomatoes at each other.

Can you even imagine it? No, you probably can't, which is why it's a good thing we sent photographer Brandon Marshall to bring back this slide-show. And if that's not enough, we brought back video of it, too. Page down to see the mayhem.
