Improv Everywhere presents The Mp3 Experiment Eight starting at 8:30pm on Saturday, July 16 in Manhattan. More event info will be made available Friday, July 15 on the Improv Everywhere website. You can RSVP via Facebook.
Here’s how it works: we put an original mp3 file online (usually around 45 minutes long) that people download and transfer to their mobile devices. Participants then synchronize their watches to an atomic clock on our website, head out to the same public location, and blend in with others. At the predetermined time, everyone presses play. Hilarity ensues as participants carry out ridiculous, coordinated instructions delivered to their headphones via narrator “Steve” and everyone else tries to figure out what the hell is going on.
Here’s the video from The Mp3 Experiment Seven which took place last fall.
