Boston firefighter Brendan Sullivan, dressed as “Buddy” from the Will Ferrell movie Elf, tried to start a Christmas pillow fight at Faneuil Hall.
“I said why don’t we do pillow fights with strangers featuring Buddy the Elf,” Sullivan told 7News.
Sullivan offered everyone the chance for a pillow fight, but his favorite was an elderly woman.
“We needed to stop and get something to eat, so we walked into a restaurant and people, they couldn’t not turn their head and stare because Buddy the Elf was eating a sandwich at a bar,” he said.
“We just wanted to spread holiday cheer, make people laugh, smile,” he said.
