Improv Everywhere: No Pants Subway 2017

From Charlie Todd of Improv Everywhere:

On Sunday, January 8th, 2017 tens of thousands of people took off their pants on subways in over 60 cities in over 25 countries around the world. In New York, our 16th Annual No Pants Subway Ride took place in windy 22F degree weather and was spread out over seven meeting points and eleven subway lines. Thanks to everyone who participated all around the globe! Enjoy the video!

Improv Everywhere: Random Parade Leader

Random Parade Leader Wanted

Improv Everywhere: Random Parade

For our latest mission, a woman in a marching band uniform stands on the sidewalk with a sign that reads “Parade Leader Wanted.” When a stranger agrees to help out, a huge parade led by a marching band emerges from around the corner and follows him wherever he goes. The band plays “Jingle Bells” and is followed by a cast of characters that includes two yetis, Frosty the Snowman, and two guys holding giant flags that read “Random Parade.”

This mission was made possible by Caring Crowd, a crowd-funding platform where people come together to fund global health projects.

Enjoy the video first and then go behind the scenes with our mission report and photos.

Improv Everywhere: Star Wars Subway Car

New from Charlie Todd of Improv Everywhere:

Star Wars Subway Car

For our latest mission, we staged a reenactment of the first Princess Leia / Darth Vader scene from Star Wars on a New York City subway car. The white walls and sliding doors on the train reminded us of the rebel ship from the movie, and we thought it would be fun to see how people would react to a surprise appearance by the iconic characters. We spread out the actors along the train line, staging it so they would enter the right car at the right time. Enjoy the video first and then go behind-the-scenes for photos and more information.

Party at an unemployment office! / Fiesta en una sucursal del Inem! [English & Spanish]

Fiesta en el Inem / Party at an unemployment office
30 Abril 2009

Fed up with the crisis. Tired of the fear that mass media communicate everyday. Sick of suffering in silence at home, we decided… go dancing at an unemployment office. Here is the result.

Hoy Jueves 30 de abril se ha llevado a cabo la fiesta en el Inem. La venà­amos preparando desde hace unas semanas y por fin la hemos liado.

¡Ha sido una auténtica gozada!, unas 40 personas hemos irrumpido a las 12:00h en la sucursal del Inem situada en la calle Sepàºlveda de Barcelona. Allà­ nos aguardaba el ambiente habitual de estos sitios a esta hora: una mezcla de parados (locales y extranjeros) hartos de esperar y perder el tiempo, aburridos, irritados y con cara de asco, llenos de miedo por la crisis. Menos de cinco minutos de baile y cachondeo han sido necesarios para cambiar esos rostros en crisis por caras alegres y sonrientes. Algunos nos han acompaà±ado en el baile, otros aplaudà­an y todos ellos, sin excepcià³n, han agradecido esta ola de luz y de color, este arrebato de alegrà­a y disfrute allà­ donde menos se lo esperaban: en una oficina de trabajo en plena crisis.

Aquà­ os dejamos algàºn documento de esta hazaà±a, ¡qué los disfrutéis!
