March on: Improv troupe seeks last-minute leader for holiday parade
Is there any better way to get into the holiday spirit than to lead a random parade down the streets of New York City? The answer is no, and the creative geniuses at Improv Everywhere took the idea and marched with it.
Improv Everywhere, a comedy collective based out of New York, is known for causing scenes with staged performances, but in the spirit of Christmas, they decided to get the public involved in the performance.
A member of the group, Anna Callegari, dressed up as a member of a parade and stood on a New York City street, asking passersby if they would like to lead their parade.
After a couple of tries, Callegari finally got someone to bite. So she dressed him how a typical parade leader should be dressed – big hat, long baton – and called in the parade to get to business. And boy, did she deliver a parade!
The video was possible thanks to CaringCrowd, a crowd-funding platform for global health projects.
