Posterchild did quite a few digital billboard alterations during his stay in New York last year (including one very special one), but this might be our favorite. The face is of Star Fox character Andross. Even if, like me, you have no idea who it is, it’s pretty damn cool looking!
I snapped the above photo in downtown Manhattan a month or so ago. There were several stone rectangles around the property that all looked similar. What a great example of the subconscious art of grafitti removal! If you are unfamiliar with the art form, see this short film from 2002 directed by Matt McCormick:
This was done on Halloween, but I just came across it recently. Pretty awesome.
For our latest mission, a 13-member handbell choir provided some unexpected accompaniment for a Salvation Army bell ringer on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. Enjoy the video first and then go behind the scenes with our report below.

This photo’s a little blurry, but it made me laugh. It looks like it was posted somewhere on the campus of USC. It’s part of a larger project called POSTERGASM. The leader of the movement wrote in to say:
I run a project called POSTERGASM which you might dig – basically it’s an open source poster prank project. People create weird, funny, or surreal posters and upload them to the ‘net. Then other pranksters print them out and put them up in their neighborhoods.
For the latest Improv Everywhere mission, Agent Lathan pretended to get lost during a Knicks game. Throughout the second half he kept appearing further and further away from his assigned seat with a confused look on his face. Of course Knicks fans went crazy trying to help him find his way back. Enjoy the video first and then go behind the scenes with the IE report: Where’s Rob?
Sean Martindale created this lovely project in Toronto. He writes:
For some time now, the spot in has been relatively empty aside from mud, waste and strewn garbage. There’s an application to build condos on the site. It has remained undisturbed since Monday and I watered it yesterday because there hasn’t been any rain lately… Grass is pretty resilient, so it should survive and take root unless/until somebody removes it. Joe Clement assisted me with the install.
