Improv Everywhere surprised random people on the steps of the New York Public Library by having them give an impromptu press conference to a group of enthusiastic reporters. When tourists approached the lectern to snap pictures, a group of reporters swarmed the scene with questions.
Now that everyone has a smartphone in their pocket, anything out of the ordinary in public space becomes an Instagram opportunity. With this project the goal was to bait people into posing for a photo and then surprise them with much more than they thought they signed up for. You can approach our microphones and pose for a photo, but if you do, you’re going to have to answer some questions.
