MIT Students Turn Great Dome Into Captain America's Shield

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — "Avengers: Endgame" isn't the only thing distracting MIT students from their exams.

Sitting atop the school's Great Dome Monday morning is what appears to be an old military surplus parachute, painted red, white, and blue to look like Captain America's shield.

It wasn't clear who was responsible for the prank, but a video was posted to YouTube with drone footage and the Avengers theme song.

It's part of an annual tradition of pranks—at MIT, they're known as "hacks"—that take place on campus during finals week.

Though many students love the prank and stopped to take photos, some still think the old police car on the roof prank tops this one.
