French prankster Rémi Gaillard gets a cast of increasingly ridiculous characters to cross the street.
Israeli group Shuk.Li held a similar event recently in Tel Aviv. Except this time, the characters fought each other, Street Fighter style. (And for some reason Patrick Ewing is one of the fighters.)
GuerilLA had some New Year’s Eve style fun this past weekend. Agent Wilner writes:
In Santa Monica there are many crosswalks that have countdown clocks signifying how long you have until you can’t cross the intersection anymore. We gathered a group of 50 agents and counted down a number of those clocks – very loudly. At the end of each countdown we went nuts – hugging, hi-fiving, cheering, screaming, using our noisemakers, toasting with our fake champagne, etc. Just like on New Year’s Eve. It was amazing! We did this at about seven intersections along the Santa Monica Promenade and then dispersed.
Also worth noting is that two participants got engaged during the mission (you’ll notice they are congratulated at the end of the video.) What better time to get engaged than New Year’s Eve! On June 8!
