Improv Everywhere

Okay, these guys are just brilliant. I guess they're based in New York and do planned sponatneous acts of hilarity. I haven't looked at everything they've done, but the video about Home Depot is hilarious.

They got a bunch of people together (I think around 200), went into a Home Depot, and everyone just froze in the middle of doing something. They synched their watches so that after five minutes, everyone would go back into action. It looks hilarious. I guess they've done tons of stuff like that, which would be so much fun.

I'm guessing there are groups that do similar things around the world, but I would love to be a part of something like that here in Indy. Pranks are so fun. And they're not mean pranks or whatever, just fun little things that everyone enjoys. I would love to do something with the canal. Not sure what, but something fun. Like getting people to sing under a bridge, or swim in the canal with floaties or something. I'm sure with a group of people, something funny would come up. Anyways, maybe I'll see if there's a group in Indy doing this already. I'll be sure to let you know if I find anything. Gosh, that'd be so much fun. Anyways, here's the link to see Improv Everywhere missions:

Dude, this is awesome! I think my favorite is the Best Buy stunt. Thanks for sharing!

We should totally get the men's group together and do something similar. I'm sure we could come up with something. Unfortunately, we've lost our camera man. Maybe 'leb would come do it.
