Marksmanship Training (2005)

Marksmanship Training is a video game performance using "the official U.S. Army game," America's Army. With over six million registered players, this first-person shooter video game is used as a recruitment tool by the U.S. Army. The game "provides players with the most authentic military experience available, from exploring the development of Soldiers in individual and collective training to their deployment in simulated missions in the War on Terror."

Marksmanship Training explores an odd anomoly in the limitations of America's Army. The game allows you to aim and fire at a commanding officer, after which you are immediately transported to a cartoonish 'prison' level, complete with a soulful blues harmonica loop in the background.
