John Harvard plays Halo3

Location: John Harvard statue in Harvard Yard
Date: Early morning of September 24, 2007

During the night prior to the release of the heavily advertised Halo 3 video game, MIT hackers transformed the statue of John Harvard into the Master Chief character from the game. In the game, the character's real name is known only as John. John was wearing the signature helmet from the game and was also holding a gun from the game. The hack was removed by around 8am.

The back of John's MJOLNIR helmet read "Master Chief in Training" and his right shoulder had a Beaver emblem. The Assult Rifle was labelled as having a remaining bullet count of 2E and said "Eng Div" on the butt of the rifle.
