Black Friday

"100 people camp out in front of the dollar store on Black Friday." Video below...

--

For our latest mission, we had 100 people camp out in front of a 99 cent store in Manhattan on Black Friday. Participants arrived early in the morning with tents, chairs, and sleeping bags, making it look like they had camped out overnight. When the store opened, the crowd rushed inside and made purchases, buying 99 cent items with glee. Actress Cody Lindquist posed as a local NBC news reporter and conducted interviews with confused and delighted store employees and passersby. -Improv Everywhere

This is better than 100 people feeding the homeless, that's for sure.

Yeah, because people in your own city don't need help or anything. This really disgusts me!

^You can help by shopping there anytime not just as part of a stunt.

Awesome joke! So ridiculous YET sends a real message about the ridiculous nature of Black Friday and how silly people act for discounts. Awesome stuff. Awesome. So glad these people are around. Really glad. Great material. Amazing. Really.

I guess comedy isn't funny anymore?

I hear they're going to camp out in a church food line next week. Will be hilarious.

A harmless way of having some fun. Didn't really laugh from it, but I guess it was mildly amusing and the cahier guy seemed to really appreciate all of that unexpected (for a $ store, anyway) rush of buisness.

On a side note, lol @ all the "jaded", trendy, I-always-think-I'm-to-cool-for-anything transplant hippy hip people pretending to be all unimpressed. Yeah, re-hased hummus jokes are WAY more amusing, right?

Guys, have you heard about the next thing? So there's a band where the members are people with mental retardation. They do Huey Lewis covers, oddly enough. They're not very good and most people don't know who they are, but they are gonna be playing a show and we are gonna get it sold out. Join us and make a difference in their lives, for that one night they are gonna feel like total rock stars.

If you have this much free time on your hands, you should be out in the Rockaways helping Sandy victims.
