Please don't reinforce the "Everyone Gets a Trophy" Generation.

//to go, please.

This was good.... although I've actually seen ESPN have coverage of a "Professional Mini Golf" tournament.

You are stupid, they didn't give everyone a trophy.

Execellent video, submitter. I'm not a golf fan, but I loved this.

You might want to watch the video again. Only one kid got awarded the Claret Jug.

I liked it as a well-crafted skit, but feel that it lacked a genuine 'holy crap, or wtf' reveal upon an otherwise unknowing number of incidentally assembled people turning into an increasingly knowing group of participants.

Improv Everywhere's stuff is fairly "friendly" now, and basically just "surprises" for people, especially towards kids a lot more now.

They used to do things that were more "edgy", but they got some flak for some of them... there was a "This American Life" story about one of them, where they surprised this guy in a bar with a bunch of people going up to him insisting he was "Ted" and that it was his birthday, bringing him gifts, etc, and then basically just left at the end of the night, not letting him in on the "joke". The guy was a bit of a loner and not really able to deal with it and had a lot of issues with it afterwords.

I had not read/heard that before.

I listened to that show, I missed parts though. I don't remember any real damage being done.

No, the guy didn't try to commit suicide or anything of that level, but, it was very unsettling to him, especially after the first year or so.

Hey, I'd love for them to do some more "messing with people's heads" things like that again... like, after some people go into some restaurant in some street in NY and sit towards the back.... they totally make the street outside and all of the people walking around so when they come back out, it seems like they are in Boston. But, I don't think they would anymore. They basically do mostly things like making the kids carousel ride like a real horse race, etc.

Those people need to improv shooting themselves in the head with a gun.

Things like this make me believe in humanity all over again.

They also almost got the snot beat out of them with one gag, involving a 'hypnotist' in a park. The crowd chased them for several blocks.

Didn't have the proper "hushed tone" to the commentary.

Not to mention ay relentlessly affected tendency to describe ay situation using ay contrived variant of the word "a", which is pronounced like "cat", unless it is the letter of the alphabet.
