An outtakes video from Improv Everywhere’s Star Wars Subway Car mission.
The Spoiler Alert signs warn waiting riders of this potentially unwanted information — allowing them to avert their eyes so they may preserve their spirit of adventure — while still leaving visible the data for travelers who wish to ruin the surprise for themselves.
For their latest mission, Improv Everywhere staged a reenactment of the first Princess Leia / Darth Vader scene from Star Wars on a New York City subway car.

From Improv Everywhere:
On Sunday, January 10th, 2010 over 5,000 people took off their pants on subways in 44 cities around the world. In New York, the 9th Annual No Pants! Subway Ride had over 3,000 participants, spread out over six meeting points and ten subway lines.

This made me laugh out loud today. Someone put googly eyes on all of the characters on the poster for the new movie Couple’s Retreat in the C/E subway station on 23rd (once home to a very fine art gallery!) The station continues to be a great place to spot hilarious stuff like this.
A brand new Improv Everywhere mission hit the interwebz today:
For our latest mission, we installed a photography studio on a random subway car. We claimed that the MTA had hired us to take photos of every single person who rides the subway and that we’d be producing a yearbook at the end of the year. Most people were happy to pose for us, and the resulting photos show just how diverse New York subway riders can be.
