As the saying goes, some things are just bigger in Japan, and one of those things happens to be pillow fighting. In the video below, you can see for yourself just how seriously some enthusiasts take pillow fighting.

To many Japanese, pillow fighting is more than just a fun activity, it's a sport, one that requires full courts, uniforms, and even referees. It makes your childhood bedroom pillow fights with your siblings look like a game of nursing home bingo.

For a country that loves to be idle and compete, America sounds like the perfect place for this type of sport. You never leave bed, it's really comfortable, and it still lets you take another person down.

Maybe in the Olympic games of the future, Olympic pillow fighting will emerge as a new event in which the fiercest competitors can dominate. Watch the video below to see if you can get behind professional pillow fighting.
