Improv Everywhere Ambushes NYC Subway Star Wars Style
On the New York City subway Iíve been subjected to mobile mariachi bands, homeless menís speeches for cash, bootleg DVD sales and even a failed attempt at pole dancing, but never something as awesome as a Star Wars invasion. For a lucky few riders, their $2.25 was worth way more than a ride from one street in Manhattan to another; they got to be part of an Improv Everywhere ambush.
This is the group responsible for shocking bystanders with out of the ordinary behavior. They shocked commuters during a mass pause in Frozen Grand Central, surprised shoppers with a performance in Food Court Musical and now theyíve treated a car-full of subway riders to some Star Wars role-play.
The reactions are absolutely hilarious. What starts out as just one guy giving the lady dressed as Princess Leia an odd look turns into a mass of riders trying to capture the action with cameras and cell phones. Good day or bad, you donít normally catch subway riders with gigantic smiles on their faces. I would have paid double the fare to have such an awesome experience on the 6.
