Improv Everywheres Star Wars Subway Car


(Youtube Direkt, via Rebelart)

Improv Everywhere haben die Eingangsszene aus „Star Wars: A New Hope“ nachgespielt… in einer U-Bahn. Das Galactic Rebellion for Dummies-Buch mag ich an der Aktion ja am liebsten.

The mission started when Leia entered her train. She had two full stops by herself before the other actors entered.

I created a book for Leia to read using a template I found online. I printed out the fake cover and attached it to one of my favorite prank books, which just so happened to be the right size and color.

Agent Lindquist got a few funny looks from the passengers around her. She was unmistakably Princess Leia with her hair buns and white robe. Yet seeing one person in a costume on the subway isn't all that strange. Maybe she's going to a party? Unless you took the time to notice the book she was reading, you might not think too much of it.

The Stormtroopers got a nice reaction when they entered. The car wasn't very crowded the first time we did it, but those who were there were laughing, particularly when the Stormtroopers grabbed Leia.

At the next stop, Vader's entrance got a great reaction. Agent Scordelis entered the car with force and authority, but unfortunately didn't account for the height of his helmet. He knocked his head on the door when he entered! It was hysterical, and we should have video of it in an upcoming "outtakes" video.
