Frozen Grand Central Station

From Improv Everywhere, a group dedicated to causing scenes of chaos and joy in public places: "On a cold Saturday in New York City, the world's largest train station came to a sudden halt. Over 200 Improv Everywhere Agents froze in place at the exact same second for five minutes in the Main Concourse of Grand Central Station. Over 500,000 people rush through Grand Central every day, but today, things slowed down just a bit as commuters and tourists alike stopped to notice what was happening around them."

I love the onlookers' spontaneous applause at the end. "We don't know what the hell that was, but it was fookin' cool!"

Thanks to Shaker YeomanPip for passing that along. If you can't view the video, click here.
