For our latest mission, we staged a series of surprises at the porta potty area of the Governors Ball music festival in New York. When random concertgoers opened our “magical” porta potty, they were surprised by a ridiculous number of performers streaming out of the door.

    The thumbnail in my feed looked like Barbara Dunkelman and the title
    sounded like something they’d totally do. I thought I clicked the wrong
    thing when I saw it was Improv…

    This is what I subscribed for!! More “pranks” like this please! I love the
    ones where strange things happen and the video is not about prancing
    people, but just making people confused. Loved it!

    I really like the people that come out of the other potties about half way
    through and were like ‘whaaa?’ 

  15. libertarianvoter says:

    This would be so much better if the sound from the mariachi and marching
    bands weren’t faked.

    From now on I’m only using porta potties with entertainment included.
