Members of the climate change action group Extinction Rebellion attempted to spray 1,800 liters of fake blood over the U.K. Treasury building in central London on Thursday morning.
It didn’t go so well.
Video of the stunt captured the moment the protesters began to spray the liquid from the top of a decommissioned fire engine towards HM Treasury building close to Downing Street.
However, within seconds the protesters lost control of the hose and the liquid mostly ended up hitting bystanders and collecting in large pools across the street. The protesters said the liquid was simply water with red food dye that can be washed off.
