Loved the looks on peoples' faces and the blase reaction of the beach patrol.

What happens when hundreds of people wade into the surf in formal wear?

Something very stupid that makes no sense and looks retarded.

No, actually they don't. According to the video notes on youtube the participants were told to wear clothing they had purchased from thrift shops.

This. I'm glad we have an "Improv Anywhere" tag now, so I don't have to watch this dreck that is about two years stale now.

It was interesting when thy first did flash mobs with some sort of funny/quirky twists for the people who weren't in on the joke to enjoy, but this sounds dumb, and probably is, given the last few stunts that they've done. Now it's just forced, and that's never "WTF" or delightful in any way as people see this sort of stuff and say, "oh, another Improv Anywhere stunt. Yawn."

It's just not funny any more.

...or "Improv Everywhere" tag...

Might as well be "Improv Whatever"

if I saw that, I'd be like "oh, a wedding party decided to have a strange reception, whatever"

I have always read it as "carefully scripted occurrences by out of work actors"

I was hoping that they would be eaten by sharks.

Oh, well.

The patrol non-reaction didn't surprise me at all.

I was wading in the ocean at Coney Island a month ago, and noticed a long wallet in the sand. Upon further inspection, I found a woman's credit cards, ID, Metro card, SS card, etc, and at least $100 in cash - probably fell out of her purse while she was enjoying the beach. It struck me as odd that nobody else noticed or cared, and nobody said anything as I went through the wallet.

I tried handing it to the lifeguard on duty who also could've cared less. So I turned the wallet over to the nearest police officer and even she seemed clueless as to what to do with it.

I think I will sum up the average person's feelings about this event: "Meh."
 
2012-09-11 11:24:13 AM
*siiigh* I remember when Improv Everywhere was funny....or, at least, they didn't try so hard.
 
2012-09-11 01:53:57 PM
They get wet?
 
2012-09-11 02:38:16 PM
I find it amusing how well planned and orchastrated their "improv" is.
 
2012-09-11 04:31:11 PM
Did not watch, but ...

A suit-nami?
 
2012-09-11 05:27:00 PM
Hopefully, a riptide.

You sound hip.

This would probably be great on a island beach in the Pacific, like Japan maybe, right after a 7.6 earthquake. Just remember to keep a camera up high somewhere.

URAPNIS: I was hoping that they would be eaten by sharks.


And while the shark was eating them it would be thinking "Hey, aren't these the same guys that jumped me a couple of years ago?!"

It seems like everything they do now is not only boring, but kind of actively annoying. According to their site, this is the "third annual" dress-up-at-the-beach thing. Isn't that kind of antithetical to the whole idea of the zany flash mob event?

I guess it's cool that they go out and have fun doing their thing, but a little bit of creativity wouldn't hurt.

The cops single you out and start to collect evidence.
