Occupy protesters take up residence in Bank of America lobby

So that’s where they went.

Bank of America branches all over the nation may get redecorated by force, as Occupy protesters set up living rooms in their lobbies. 

A video that went up on YouTube Tuesday shows a group of protesters marching down the street with a couch, a coffee table and even a potted plant, entering Bank of America and setting up a living room. 

When a bank employee asked what they were doing, one protester responded “Bank of America took our homes so we though we’d move in here!” They then proceed to welcome a friend into their living room and start up a game of Connect Four. 

The video closes by asking watchers to “FIGHT BAC!” (BAC intentional) and “MOVE IN!” to background music of protesters singing “Our house, in the middle of a bank,” complete with a beat boxer. 

A spokesperson from Bank of America said they would not be commenting on the planned protests. 

Watch the video below, and perhaps wait to make your deposits until Friday lest you be confronted with a living-room style protest.
