No Pants Subway Ride 2014

The No Pants Subway Ride by New York City based improv group Improv Everywhere is about as old as YouTube. 

Still, they hold the annual prank on commuters every year in the dead cold of winter for extra shock value and bring along cameras to entertain the Internet. 

This year, tens of thousands of riders in on gag took off their pants while riding subways in over 60 cities in 25 countries around the world.

A Christmas Story In Real Life

In honor of Christmas, Improv Everywhere had three kids recreate the famous „triple dog dare“ scene from A Christmas Story as apart of their Movies In Real Life series on a New York City subway train.

You know, the scene when the kids dare one boy to stick his tongue on a frozen flag pole which instantly becomes stuck. 

Thankfully, a trusty FDNY firefighter just happened to be walking by and help the kid remove his glued ‚tongue.‘

I AM SPARTACUS Prank At Starbucks

One of the most iconic scenes from the 1960’s historical drama Spartacus is when the slaves are asked to give up their leader, and they each announce, „I am Spartacus!“

Popular NYC based improv group Improv Everywhere brought the scene to life at a Starbucks in Manhattan as a part of their Movies In Real Life series.

After a barista called out a drink for ‚Spartacus,‘ countless people proclaimed to be the actual beverage owner until, finally, a roman slave rightfully claimed the drink. 

 „The scene was produced without the knowledge of the Starbucks.“

Harry Potter In Real Life

When a little British boy pushing a travel cart packed high with luggage and an owl in a cage walks by at the train station, one person obviously comes to mind. 

It must be Harry Potter in real life!

So for their latest Movies In Real Life gimmick, Improv Everywhere sent a young Brit around Penn Station in New York City asking for helping in finding platform 9 and 3/4 that of course doesn’t exist.
