If you aren’t hip to the jive that is Improv Everywhere, you best need to educate yourselves. The guerilla performance group has pulled off their latest, and in my opinion, also their GREATEST MISSION EVER!
I’ll Let them explain…
“For our latest mission we converted a New York City subway car into a “sleeper car,” giving New Yorkers the chance to rest their heads during a late night commute. We set up three beds, each outfitted with a comforter, pillow, and sheets. Pajamas, sleep masks, and earplugs were also provided as part of this unauthorized free service. The project took place on the above-ground N train in Astoria, Queens around midnight on a Sunday evening.”
This project was produced by Improv Everywhere as part of the Guggenheim Museum exhibition stillspotting nyc. You really need to see this.
Anyone who has ever endured a bleary-eyed, soul crushing, commute from heck knows this “performance,” was beautiful. Tears are streaming down my cheeks, bless these beautiful stewards of Art and Social Interaction.
Question: How many of you wish or have wished you could nap thru the commute before or after a long day of sweatin’ for the cash?
Answer: Every last one of you.
Like so many incredible things from New York City…I’m hoping this becomes a Nationwide trend. Let’s set up some copycat “Missions!”
I dedicate this one to Undercover Mother, she knows why.
