    Joofro, read the description! Please, dont be like YouTube users!

    On another note, this was pretty cool. But, didnt the group in Grand Central Station last for a few hours? Maybe I`m not remembering correctly...

    Freezing? I thought the first time this happened, it would be enough.

    It would be way, WAY funnier if they all pretended to have heart attacks or strokes or something at the same time.

    I doubt that this was Improv Everywhere. I figure that would`ve heard about it on their mailing list if they had completed a mission and posted it, and a NYC mission would have been on their web page as well. This also doesn`t appear on the related site urbanprankster.com.

    Anyway, I recently participated in the Brooklyn Bridge mission that IE just had recently. Weather hampered our plans but was a lot of fun, if you`re in New York then look at improveverywhere.com otherwise to find possible missions in your area, go to: urban prankster. Those are the two official sites started by the guy who did the grand central freeze.

    Considering that at the end of the video it tells you to go to Taco Bell in a week or so to get a free sample of one of their drinks, I would guess that this was produced by Taco Bell themselves and was not a prank, but a staged event.

    Hmm this is the second one of these recently, cashing in on Improv Everywhere`s ideas. If I were that kind of person, I`d say it was about time IE had a little retaliatory exercise against the companies stealing their glory for profit.

    I`m pretty sure this is Taco Bell promoting their new Fruitista FREEZE.

    The whole freezing thing really isn`t so original anymore.

    I didn`t think it was nearly as good as the grand central station one. There were clearly people moving- plus I am very disappointed that this was turned into a commercial basically. It kind of ruins the whole "random" vibe.
