Looking For Jurassic Park In New York City Prank

As a continuation of their silly Movies In Real Life series, prominent New York City based art group Improv Everywhere sent four of their actors on a Jurassic Park Jeep through Manhattan and Brooklyn in search of the actual Jurassic Park.

They started in Manhattan, and hit up all the famous city parks while asking New Yorkers if they knew where ‘the park’ was. As in Jurassic Park. Duh. 

Finally, they made their way across the Manhattan Bridge to Brooklyn, and found a herd of a single raptor at Prospect Park.

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.
