Back To The Future In Real Life In Manhattan

As the web is so heavily populated with people who grew up in the 80’s and 90’s, it’s no surprise that Back To The Future is one of the most iconic films online. 

Capitalizing on this fact, Improv Everywhere brought the popular Steven Spielberg time travel movie to life at a plaza near the Met Life Clock Tower in Manhattan as a part of their Movies In Real Life series.

Passersby quickly picked up on the gag after seeing a guy on a date wearing a bright orange jacket, and a woman asking coffee drinkers to ‘save the clock tower.’

The Matrix In Real Life Prank At Macy’s

As a part of their continuing Movies In Real Life series, Improv Everywhere sent Neo shopping at Macy’s. You know, for one of those cool “man dresses” Keanu Reeves is always wearing in The Matrix movies. 

But while shopping, a seemingly endless stream of agents attacked, and a slow-motion style Matrix battle ensued.

Even the employees couldn’t help but smile at the obvious movie reference.

You Shall Not Pass Prank In Central Park

As a part of Improv Everywhere‘s silly Movies In Real Life series, the New York City based improv art group brought Lord of the Rings to Central Park’s iconic Bow Bridge. 

Well, just Gandolf saying his famous line, “You shall not pass,” but New Yorkers seemed to enjoy the gag none the less.

Indiana Jones In Real Life

Without a doubt, the most famous Indiana Jones scene is from Raiders Of The Lost Ark when Indy switches the idol for a bag of sand of equal weight, and a giant boulder comes rolling down to crush him. 

After recreating Rocky In Real Life, popular NYC based improv group Improv Everywhere decided to take on Indy and recreate the famous boulder scene at Central Park.

It didn’t take New Yorkers more than a second of seeing a guy in a brown leather jacket and hat running from a ‘boulder’ to pick up on the reference and smile.
