Who will save the children from themselves? Certainly not Hollywood.
Not surprisingly, the kids of America are throwing raucous parties inspired by the hit comedy, "Project X." As the found-footage flick depicts some of the most deviant teenage behavior ever put to film, you can see why this might be a cause for alarm -- for the kids' parents, neighbors and local police precincts alike.
Art almost imitated life in the Miami, FL suburb of Miramar, where 18-year old Christopher Dade and at least one other teen broke into and trashed a foreclosed house, where they shot a video invitation to "'Project X' Party 2." The epic bacchanal never got off the ground, though, as neighbors called the cops and Dade was arrested for burglary.
Let that be a lesson to all you would-be party hosts: If you're going to make a video of yourself breaking into and making a mess of a house that doesn't belong to you, don't post it on YouTube.
Things got a lot more out of control in Houston, TX, where a "Project X"-inspired spring break rave turned deadly when a fight broke out and a teen suspect pulled a gun, resulting in the death of another teen.
After the shots were fired, the police arrived to find everything in total chaos. "Patrol officers got here first and they said there were people everywhere," said HPD Sgt. Adolfo Carillo. "There were people running everywhere and trying to leave the scene." Police chased the suspect through the woods but lost him in the confusion.
The house party had attracted hundreds of guests, most of whom had heard about it on various social media sites. "Pretty much it was just a party, a foam mansion party -- the remake of 'Project X,'" said Sade Williams, a party-goer who learned about the rave on Twitter.
Not cool at all.
Anyway, we're sure it's only a matter of time before the movie gets blamed for all of this -- stay tuned for any and all news on "Project X" being sued for contributing to the teenage wasteland.
