San Francisco Freeze, A Synchronized Snafu

San Francisco Freeze

Inspired by Improv Everywhere’s amazing Frozen Grand Central event last month, where a couple hundred people froze in place at Grand Central Station for five minutes, San Francisco Freeze is being organized for 3:15pm on Saturday, February 23rd at Cable Car Turnaround in San Francisco.

The San Francisco event is slightly different than the NYC event, participants will freeze and unfreeze as they hear “the sound”.

Every time you hear “the sound” freeze in place, hear the sound again resume walking, hear the sound again freeze in place, resume walking…and on and on…
