Jar Jar Binks Attacked on NYC Subway

Improv Everywhere is looking for help identifying the brutal thugs who attacked Jar Jar Binks on the NYC subway.

For our latest mission, we attempted to stage a sequel to our Star Wars Subway Car mission, using characters from Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. Jar Jar Binks entered a random train car and informed subway riders that he was scared that Darth Maul was chasing him. If things had gone as planned, people would have laughed and been surprised when Darth Maul showed up at the next stop.

Unfortunately, three men on the train decided to ruin the fun for everyone by assaulting our actor playing Jar Jar. We were not going to even post this mission, but the actor who played Jar Jar wants to press charges, and we are searching for information on the three guys who attacked him. We hope that someone who sees this video will know them personally or recognize their faces.

UPDATE 1: As you might have guessed, this was an April Fool’s Day prank.

UPDATE 2: Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the prank.
