Weapon of Mass Instruction - Raul Lemesoff creates a library on wheels

Raul Lemesoff is an artist in Buenos Aires, Argentina who decided to create a tank which he has named 'Weapon of Mass Instruction.'

Instead of blowing up the world, which is what weapons of mass instruction would usually do, Raul is spreading and collecting knowledge.

Raul Lemesoff converted a 1979 Ford Falcon into a rather unique tank-like vehicle complete with a swiveling turret, a non-functioning gun, and space to store about 900 books — inside and on the outside of the vehicle.

'My missions are very dangerous, I attack people in a very nice and fun way.' 
— Raul Lemesoff

You can watch a short four minute video below which follows his journey from the original conception of the idea, to it's final completion as he drives the tank library through the streets of Buenos Aires, delivering books to various folk.
