Museum Prank by Improv Everywhere

March 8, 2011


Oh my gosh I love these guys!!!! They are Improv Everywhere, and what a great sense of humor they have! LOL… about their latest video, they say:

For our latest mission we staged an unauthorized autograph signing in the Metropolitan Museum of Art with an actor who bears a striking resemblance to King Philip IV of Spain. Standing in front of the 400-year-old Velázquez painting, the “King” greeted museum patrons and offered free signed 8×10 photos.

You can read the story at their blog, as well as see some other pranks they have pulled. I think I love these guys!

Notice in the video how when “King Philip IV” walks into the museum, no one looks twice?

Such is New York….

    Ah, another classic by the folks at Improv Everywhere. I love these guys. There is nothing like giving the public something they don’t expect. Thanks for posting this. I haven’t visited their blog in quite awhile. Seems to me a visit is overdue.

    The king looks great for being 400! LOL I can’t believe people actually stopped for his autograph! How funny!

    Okay, so why isn’t there more of this going on to get people to go to the art museum more often???! You KNOW I’d be all about getting my photo with the king!!

    I think it was a travesty that The King was ordered out of the museum. Sheesh, the old fuddy duds!
