Crusading - with a multimedia projector

I saw a poster on a wall yesterday, whilst bumping our way through Lagos traffic.


It was advertising the sale and rental of projectors for -


- Film watching


- Corporate presentations


- Parties


Fair enough. There was one suggested use that I didn't quite understand, however.


- Crusades


I had images of knights turning up in Lagos on their way to Jerusalem so that they could pick up a projector to take with them. I'm sure it would have kept them entertained during cold evenings stuck in their castles. You could also use it to beam bad films into an enemies' encampment. After a siege consisting of five solid days of Woody Allen's more recent films, anyone would be ready to throw in the towel.


One of the local guys at the customer explained it to me though - crusades, in this context, is referring to religious gatherings...


Still, I wish I'd got a picture!
