Best Buy prank

Posted by: Above The Aether In: California |Humor |Weird


From Laughing Squid Blog:

Improv Everywhere is a group of pranksters based out of New York City who have been “causing scenes” in public since 2001. Their lastest mission took place last month when 80 of their agents showed up at the Best Buy store in Union Square wearing blue polo shirts and khakis, which of course caused mass confusion, along with the occasional electronics sale. Here’s their full mission write-up complete with photos, video (from hidden cameras) and first-hand accounts.

Ok, I think this is brilliantly funny. I only wish I owned a blue polo shirt and was visiting NYC that weekend. I wonder if I showed up at the White House wearing a Halliburton shirt with a fistful of oil stocks and millitary contracts if Mr 30% would put me to work?

Bet he would. He ain’t too bright.

  • Dave: I think someone should make some dance music from those "WHOAHs."
  • epiphenita: Oh, Dave. That was tonic to my soul. Perfect. I vote for an exorcism.
  • Dave: Hmm, looks sober to me.
  • Scott: I'm thinking that the guy with the hat might have had a drink or two before this picture was taken. Just a hunch...
  • Scott: There's a roleplaying scenario just waiting to be written based on these pictures. :-)


Stepping over the steaming pile of reality. This is one man's journey into the absurd.
