Tug of war (also known as war of tug, tug o' war, tug war, rope war, rope pulling, tugging war or Afrikaans: toutrek) is a sport that directly puts two teams against each other in a test of strength: teams pull on opposite ends of a rope, with the goal being to bring the rope a certain distance in one direction against the force of the opposing team's pull.

This mural was hidden between the Hult Center and its parking lot. The mural is further hidden on days leading up to performances and the days of performance because huge trucks line the alley and block it.

The tug of war was between a large rat and a line of children.

The oversized rat wore a baseball hat and held the rope with ease. The credit, "Blek le Rat," was printed between the rat's feet.

The rear two kids seemed more lackadaisical then did the kid directly ahead of them.
