Chris Hardwick and Team Nerdist Takes on Team POWER RANGERS in Laser Tag At ID10T Fest!

Chris Hardwick and Team Nerdist Takes on Team POWER RANGERS in Laser Tag At ID10T Fest!

Last weekend, Nerdist founder Chris Hardwick brought his ID10T Music Festival + Comic Conival to Silicon Valley for a unique event that combined almost all of our favorite passions, including TV shows, music, comics, comedy, and more. And if you didn’t happen to make it out to the inaugural ID10T Fest, then you missed the epic laser tag showdown between Chris’ Team Nerdist and a team representing Saban’s Power Rangers!

That’s right, it was Team Nerdist vs. Team Power Rangers for the ultimate laser tag bragging rights. And who better to follow Chris into battle than his wife, Lydia Hardwick Hearst? As Chris himself noted, she would easily defeat him if she was on the other team! Chris was also joined by his nephew, Caleb Hardwick, and Bizarre States co-host, Andrew Bowser.

Team Power Rangers was represented by Power Morphicon founder Scott Zillner, Power Rangers Now founder Michael Louie, and YouTube star Dang Matt Smith. Fortunately, they were also joined by two of the stars from Saban’s Power Rangers: Yellow Ranger Becky G and Blue Ranger RJ Cyler.

The video offers up a taste of the Power Rangers themed course and the laser tag action, and it turned out to be an amazingly close game. As much as we’d like to say that Team Nerdist did what Rita Repulsa failed to do so many times in the TV series, we can’t. Because Team Power Rangers came out on top with a score of 143 to 140. Oh sure, they’re celebrating now. But wait until we unleash our Putties!

Despite our defeat in battle, we’re very proud of the way that ID10T came out. The festival brought together the cast and creators behind Mystery Science Theater 3000, Stan Against Evil, The MagiciansAnimaniacs, Portlandiaand Harmontown, as well as some of the biggest names in comedy and music, as well as an impressive lineup of comic book creators. We’re pumped to do it again, if we get the opportunity!
