For Improv Everywhere’s latest mission, six undercover actors burst into song in a grocery store in Queens. Three minutes and lots of silly choreography later, they returned to their roles as shoppers and stock boys. The mission was filmed with hidden robotic, lipstick, and wearable cameras.

Airport Musical

This is a viral marketing video promoting some sort of theatre ticket website in London. It seems like they wanted to capitalize on the success of Improv Everywhere’s Food Court Musical video, which went viral about a month before this was filmed. Improv Everywhere was not the first to stage a musical in a public place (see: Prangstgrüp’s “Reach!” for an earlier example,) but there are a couple of things in this video that were directly taken from Food Court Musical, most obviously the appearance of a threatening security guard who then surprises everyone by singing as well.
