Improv Everywhere Rules World with U2 Rooftop Stunt, Dominates Media

Image Hosted by

Last week, The Apiary reported we had reason to believe the impromptu U2 concert on the top of an 8th Avenue building hours before U2's scheduled performance at Madison Square Gardens could have been the work of Improv Everywhere--the savvy band of improvisers, comedians, and performance artists who pull off tongue wagging, media swarming stunts every month or so.

Our instincts were validated Sunday by--perhaps you've heard of them--The New York Times.

In a simultaneous move, Improv Everywhere's astoundingly detailed account of the mission went live on their site yesterday as well. The reaction photographs of the frenzied passersby are especially striking. Especially especially striking is the shot of the dude with arm-braces seen raising the roof.

    Rules and all laws of the life of the humans are done and organized. It is the regulating tendency of the times and all such concerns. It is the embedded and civilized. The performed and ascertained tinge of the times and all such conditions.
