Why did disney need to wrap its tentacles around paintball? Backwards hoppers, taking off googles, non enclosed areas, no barrel bags. With the imperial might of disney you would think that they could buy their "experienced" player something that cost more than 50$ at Walmart. Or at least have the decency to not lead children astray teaching them that it's ok to take off safety equipment. I'm done ranting.
P.s the show was "Jessie"

Basic plot: kid challenges "bully" to paintball match, and they play it in the neighborhood park without any safety precautions using 50$ walmart spiders that come with a hopper gun co2 tank and 200 rounds.

Just let them be, because you basically need to shut your brain down to watch stuff that involves paintball. Hell some might even forget paintball was a part of that show like 30 minutes after watching.

And it's not like the public knows any better

Tldr :

Don't be so butt hurt since people have forgettable TV/movie watching, especially with short paintball scenes.

Also also non paintballers don't know paintball

I learned a long time ago that the general public's idea of paintball is way off.....

watch the begenning of this video and the parts at 6:00 and 7:50 in this video. That's what people think paintball is, and it's sad.

I personally give no shit about the "general public's" opinion on anything. 90% of the general public knows about Justin Bieber's criminal situation or Kim Kardashian's baby.. The world is seriously fucked up. If you're serious about any activity, you'll give it the attention and respect it deserves.

They tend to do paintball at least once in a lot of the live action kids shows, it's not something new.

Meh, I tend to not care how paintball is shown in Hollywood movies and TV shows.  Outside of the paintball scene no one cares, its a joke sport to anyone who doesn't play it.  We've been bitching about how its respresented in mainstream videos for years and it's never done a thing.

So paintball is the modern equivalent of Richard Connell's "The Most Dangerous Game"?
Interesting...
