Amazing "Prank" - In Case You Missed It

I promise, I truly will get back to my regular blog duties. There are three memes to finish, an award to acknowledge, and more Fun Mondayers to visit. However, I had to share this video of a "prank" at New York's Grand Central Station. Absolutely unbelievable - I wonder how you would react, had this happened at a busy place near you?

It involved over 200 people - and is part of "Improv Everywhere." LOVE the guy who spilled his papers right before the clock started!

swampy said...

Only is NYC. Loved it.
Reminds me of when I was teaching...I would go into another teacher's room when s/he stepped out for a minute and tell the kids to freeze and not move until I gave came back in and gave them the sign. They loved it.

M@ said...

That was a good one, for sure.

Btw, how much time you spend on Fun Monday anyway? Is it really that much fun?

dailypiglet said...

THAT was awesome!

The Rotten Correspondent said...

I'll bet those people were freaked out trying to figure out why all these people had just frozen.

Wow.

Pamela said...

I would eat garlic and stand very close.

Tiggerlane said...

lydiascozycorner - welcome, and do come back!

swampy - that's a neat trick - I have a feeling my kid would LOVE to have you as a teacher!

m@ - less than an hour a week, but a lot more if I visit everyone. And yeah, it's fun! DO IT. Give in to the force.

dailypiglet - glad you enjoyed!

the rotten correspondent - to be honest, I was surprised security wasn't called.

the immoral matriarch - I was a little slow getting it on here, but it was worth sharing.

sirdar - I would love to try it, except I know I would start giggling.

pamela - HORRIBLE! LOL!
