Avatar Mask : Bank Robbery - Avatar Delusion Disorder

Brooklyn, New York - Avatar costume used in Bank robbery. Police report an unidentified and possibly delusional suspect has been apprehended. In the early morning hours of Wednesday, August 8th, Bandora Federal Bank on 827 Relese St was assaulted by a 12 foot tall Man masquerading as the popular character, Jake Sully, from the Movie Avatar. Witnesses state that the man appeared completely naked with his body completely covered in blue paint. A ragged loincloth was found outside the banks doors says Bank Representatives.

"He approached the counter very swiftly , shortly after we opened at 9am," said Bank Teller, Emily White, "he began shouting at me and gesturing, but I could not understand a word he was saying, it was gibberish."

Authorities speculate that the man was speaking the Na'Vi language from the Avatar Movie. The department is unable to provide an interpreter at this time but can confirm that the language is not Klingon , which due to demand, they  have a department sponsored interpreter for as required by NYS Civil Rights Amendment  4h clause 5673 .

The Man wearing the Avatar mask continued to gesticulate and speak unintelligibles until the Brooklyn Police arrived, less than 5 minutes after the Avatar Costume wearing man entered the premises, according to security cameras.

The Banks security, James Whitmore,  appears to have been unnerved by the mans extraordinary height and naked appearance and was not active in the attempted bank robbers capture. Police do not currently consider Mr Whitmore to be a suspect in any possible conspiracy. Bank officials have suspended Mr Whitmore without pay until the investigation is complete.

"Its the weirdest thing I have ever experienced on the Job" Says Cpt. John Lane,17th Precinct, "How do you apprehend a giant naked Blue Man who obviously has no weapon?"

The apprehension of the suspect was remarked as being "comical" by a Bank customer who wishes to remain unnamed. Surveillance video of the apprehension has been sealed as evidence.

Avatar Costume Bank Suspect remains unidentified.

Teal Bottswain, Psy.D, has been retained to assess the mental stability of the suspect. Ms. Bottswain research into the newly diagnosed disorder 'Avatar Delusional Syndrome" is considered groundbreaking.

"It would seem the unfortunate name of the bank caused the man to target it for possible robbery, although, it still is unclear whether the mans motives were to rob the bank" says Bottswain. "It is my professional opinion that any charges made until this obviously delusional man is properly diagnosed and understood would be a miscarriage of justice."

Avatar Delusional Syndrome exist in 43 confirmed cases across America. Those who suffer from the delusion find themselves drawn into the world of Pandora as an escape from a world they have trouble accepting or being accepted by.

The suspect remains unidentified, in a bizarre twist to the Avatar Delusion Syndrome, the suspect appears to have permanently adhered an Avatar Mask or Avatar prosthesis to his face.

As the man is unable or unwilling to speak in any language that can be identified, nothing further is known about the man.

The loincloth found outside the bank seemed to have some sort of diary entry in the folds, thsi diary entry is in English and is currently being used to support the mans preliminary diagnosis of Avatar Delusional disorder.

The Diary entry is reproduced here, Avatar Masks my addiction and descent into the land of Pandora . Police have released this entry in hopes of finding friends or relatives to help in the mans identification.

It is still unclear if the Mans height has been artificially augmented but it has been released that the "paint" was in fact a full body tattoo coloration.

a glimpse into the mind of the Avatar Mask

"I fought off glowing dragons and capitalist swine intent on destroying hometree until I discovered the smurf village. In a rage, I beat smurfs against trees and drowned them in my movie soda cups. I collected my smurf trophies and skulked back to my dumpster behind my portal to Pandora (the AMC) and carefully prepared my smurf hides. After careful and deliberate constuction I created my masterpiece..the perfect Avatar Navi mask. .. from the Avatar Diaries

Very clever, sunforged. With 43 ADS cases already confirmed, I suspect it won't be long until all police departments as well as government agencies will be required to have Na'vi interpreters on hand. Could be a great niche for job seekers. All they have to do is find Pandora and learn the language.

I know the Avatar Blues are real, but what a sad state of affairs when a movie can elicit such emotion. I loved the movie, but it's the story of us! Humans always destroy the tribe for the "gold" underneath the village. It's been going on forever. I do love this hub, and the other one as well.

After the re-release of Avatar, low box office numbers may result in starving Avatar fiends invading your towns earlier than expected.

Be wary

Good Lord are we such a weak minded society that we get addicted to the most mundane things or is it idolatry?

Well at least he would make it very obvious of the one thing most criminals have in common, they have testicles.

Very Nice.

This delivers messages to me about how poor, or abrasive my deliver often is. Satire is far more effective than telling the obscene truth about things - as people can't accept direct confrontation to their ideals or beliefs, but Satire generally cuts through all of that. It's like showing someone their own face in a mirror in a way.

At first I thought this was really a story about some "news of the weird." Sometimes in this world, where truth is stranger than fiction, even fine satire can be confusing.
