Street theater invades Home Depot

Those of you who have attended one of my workshops might recall Improv Everywhere's Central Park experiment, where they got hundreds of people to zombie-walk across Sheep's Meadow before playing a huge game of Simon Says and Rock, Paper, Scissors. Well, they have been at it again.

On their latest "mission," they sent more than 200 people into a Home Depot in New York City to walk in slow motion and then freeze for five minutes. See the video.

Tip of the day: Consider how you might make use of street theater or other creative local people to stage experiences at your business.

    The best part of this is that the employees had talked the whole thing up to being like "an hour" or at least "45 minutes." Makes you think about how much gets exaggerated in our daily conversations and perceptions.
