Freezing Grand Central Station

A group called Improv Everywhere ’causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places’. Last weekend:

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.

The video is weirdly beautiful. There’s also some particularly nifty long-exposure photography, given that you’re probably not allowed to use cameras in there.

I’ve just spent far too long reading through their other exploits. The taxi-based romantic comedy is lovely.
