Improv Everywhere’s Black Tie Beach Prank

Improv Everywhere has posted the video of their Black Tie Beach prank where several hundred agents spent the day at Coney Island / Brighton Beach wearing formal wear.

We covered a mile-long stretch of beach with a diverse group of people of all ages (from babies to sixty-somethings) laying out, playing games, and swimming in the ocean, all in formal wear. Agents were instructed to find cheap tuxedos and ball gowns at thrift stores for the occasion.
