From Charlie Todd of Improv Everywhere:
For our latest mission we staged the iconic “I am Spartacus!” scene from Spartacus in a Manhattan Starbucks. I ordered a drink and gave the name “Spartacus.” When the barista called the name, a group of 20 men stood up one-by-one proclaiming to be Spartacus. The real punchline arrived at the end, when a man dressed as a Roman slave arrived to claim the beverage. The scene was produced without the knowledge of the Starbucks.
This project is part of our new series, Movies in Real Life. Every Tuesday, we”™re releasing a new video that brings an iconic movie moment to life in the real world.
