People Roleplay as Americans In Poland on the 4th of July, and They’re Hilarious

There’s a group in Poland that gets together on the 4th of July for the last few years to roleplay or LARP (live-action roleplay) as Americans. They describe it as a “social drama focusing on the death of the American Dream.” But it’s not all about poking fun at American stereotypes. “It’s a story about hope, looking and finding your place in both your country and the society,” they say on their mission.

Those who sign up and participate are provided with “fully functional, realistic cabins or trailers for the duration.” The event includes a “best American Pie competition, boxing match, fireworks, firearm training session, and more.”

It’s also just a really funny and humbling moment to see how a group of Polish people see American culture.
