Improv Group's Star Wars Scene On Subway

July 14, 2010


This is a video of Improv Everywhere's rendition of the the opening scene from A New Hope on the #6 train in New York. It's pretty cute, despite the glaring lack of golden bikini.

For our latest mission, we staged a reenactment of the first Princess Leia / Darth Vader scene from Star Wars on a New York City subway car. The white walls and sliding doors on the train reminded us of the rebel ship from the movie, and we thought it would be fun to see how people would react to a surprise appearance by the iconic characters. We spread out the actors along the train line, staging it so they would enter the right car at the right time

Oh man, did I tell you about the improv troupe I saw the last time I was in New York? They faked this whole elaborate stabbing on the subway. I would have sworn it was real. Okay, so it might have been real. But if it was so real, why was I clapping? Because I was high as a kite and had a mouthful of Sour Patch Watermelons? God, you're good.

Hit it for the 2:30 video.

Thanks to JJ, Brandy, Uncle_FUJ, junkyard dog, Mike, butterfacefly and Christina, who don't need to see a show on the subway, just nobody masturbating.
