Improv Everywhere – Causing Scenes

Improv Everywhere - Human Mirror

Improv Everywhere stages happenings that wreak good natured havok in public places. For their latest mission “Human Mirror” they gathered nine sets of identical twins and rode the subway in NYC. The twins sat across from their other half and emulated each other as closely as possible.

Recently, the collaborators connected more that 2,000 people in 10 cities worldwide to go for pants free for shocking subway rides.

Some of the events that the pranksters organize are not so large in scale but equally engaging. Witness the absurd suicide jumper complete with security trying to talk him down.

The society hit the high water mark with “Frozen Grand Central”. More than 200 agents froze simultaneously for 5 minutes. Still images don’t do the project justice so you will have to watch the video.
