Freezing Grand Central Station

A couple hundred people created an event in Grand Central Station in NYC simply by freezing in place. The event was coordinated by Improv Everywhere, a group that has managed to create some wonderfully amazing events with good coordination, a lot of volunteers, and not much else. Who needs a big budget to do something this fun and memorable?

The plan: Get a couple hundred people to freeze in place in GCS for five minutes. People stopped mid-conversation, mid-stride, even mid-paper drop.

The execution: Flawless.

Note: my landlord participated in one of their events at a Home Depot. He loved it and if you're near NYC, check out one of their events in the future.

Yeah, I liked when that one guy came up (bottom pic.) and reached out and made sure she was "for real" LOL
Wasn't that guy one of the "Agents" involved with the prank?
Hmm, I thought they ALL were supposed to freeze *shrug*

No. There are other duties to perform. Some will videotape, some will try to provoke responses from passers-by, and some will just keep watch. The volunteers do the freezing since that's easy to explain to a large crowd.
Understood. I wonder what the response would be if they did that at Roswell LOL

You would have cost U.S. citizens a loveton of tax money wasted on sending government-types to cover up a prank.
