Public Stunts: The New York Freeze


Here's a video of a public stunt performed at Grand Central Station last month by 207 members of the Improv Everywhere acting group. They refer to it as a "freeze" where they walk into the train station and all freeze their positions at the exact same moment.

After holding positions for 5 minutes, they instantly resume their actions as if nothing had happened, confusing the hell out of the people who had no idea what was happening.

Apparently it went well because a similar group in London copied the act last week in Trafalgar Square.

It's amazing the impact you can have from just a few hundred people doing something slightly unusual in a public area.
