This is the latest mission from Improv Everywhere held in New York. I love it. A big mouth full of unsavory words seem quite normal today. This action from Improv could be a reaction on that. Well that is my interpretation.
Improv Everywhere placed a wooden lectern with a megaphone holster and an attached sign: Say Something Nice. The lectern was placed outdoor on various places in New York and then left alone. They wanted to see what would happen if New Yorkers were given the opportunity say something nice.
Improv Everywhere describes themselves as a New York City-based prank collective that causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places.
