Improv Everywhere: King Philip IV

Filed under: Culture Jamming and Reality Hacking, Pranksters

From Charlie Todd of Improv Everywhere:

King Philip IV

For our latest mission we staged an unauthorized autograph signing in the Metropolitan Museum of Art with an actor who bears a striking resemblance to King Philip IV of Spain. Standing in front of the 400-year-old Velà¡zquez painting, the “King” greeted museum patrons and offered free signed 8à—10 photos.

Starring: Chadwick Elliott as King Philip IV and Charlie Todd as his handler. Shot by: Matt Adams, Gabriel Chai, Keith Haskel, Joe Stramowski. Photography: Katie Sokoler
