Improv Everywhere

In the left navigation, you'll see that I added a permanent homepage link to Improv Everywhere. I first discovered the Web site a little over six months ago, not long after their "No Shirts" stunt. For that particular event, 111 men shopped shirtless in the Abercrombie and Fitch store on New York City's 5th Avenue. If you're familiar with Abercrombie and Fitch at all, you know the company perpetuates ads with half-naked -- or sometimes completely naked -- models. There's even a shirtless male model who greets customers at that particular Abercrombie and Fitch store . . . (What is our world coming to?)

Well, Improv Everywhere decided to make a mockery of the whole thing. So into Abercrombie and Fitch walked over one hundred shirtless male shoppers! It's hilarious!

But the fun doesn't stop there. From their Web site:
Improv Everywhere causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. Created in August of 2001 by Charlie Todd, Improv Everywhere has executed over 70 missions involving thousands of undercover agents. The group is based in New York City.

You really ought to take some time to watch the videos of some of the missions. My favorites?

Now go visit the site!

Thing I'm thankful for: walking in good weather.
