The latest project from GuerilLA, folks ballroom dancing in a grocery store while a flute duet plays Bach’s Minuet.
Urban Pranksters GuerilLA threw a “house warming party” in several rooms of a Burbank Ikea this past weekend. Agent Benny and the Jets writes:
About 30-40 people showed up to one of the living room/kitchen sets at the Ikea in Burbank, bringing gifts (mostly things from other departments at the store). Many people brought cookies and snacks, and games like Jenga. The party was cut off after about twenty minutes by the Ikea staff, at which point Agent Tuttle, the “host” of the party, yelled out that it looks like we’re being too loud and that “the neighbors called the cops”.
Reminds us of Rob Cockerham’s Ikea Fancy Dress Party.
GuerilLA, the Improv Everywhere-offshoot in Los Angeles, recently put up their newest mission, Aerial Philanthropy. The group threw dollar bill airplanes off of a parking deck in Los Angeles by the ArcLight Theatre. You’ll notice Skylar Stone randomly happened to catch one of the bills.
Similar cool stuff:
Last weekend, GuerilLA held an impromptu Finish Line on The Strand in Manhattan Beach, CA.
The race was complete with a Finish Line sign, finish line tape, water tables, supportive signs, journalists, photographers, videographers, and a large cheering group of people spread along a quarter mile of The Strand. Runners and cyclists had no idea that they were actually near the end of a marathon, until the last second!
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!
