Photo-games-logoAre you excited about the upcoming Summer Olympics in London and do you like photography? If so, you'll love this funny spoof video entitled "The 2012 World Photo Games" where various camera gear is substituted for batons, shot puts and other sports equipment.

Created by Calgary, Canada-based pro photo dealer The Camera Store, the video is a follow-up to the hilarious Battle at F-Stop Ridge video that went super-viral last year.

And in case you were wondering if any real, working gear got damaged during the making of The 2012 World Photo Games, rest easy.

According to Jordan from The Camera Store TV: "The camera was already broken, the 85mm was a fake, the stop bath bottle was empty, and the film roll was already exposed. The only costs were two headbands, parking, and the music licenses."
