Architects of a New Dawn

We’d like to show the side of the world you don’t normally see on television.

A video created by "ImproveEverywhere", Part of the Urban Prankster Network.
Unsuspecting customers in a mall resaurant are treated to an almost epic musical production that seemed to emerge from around them. A prank, yes. But such a lovely benign prank designed to bring joy.

The more I think about this and look at it, the more I realise what a brilliant idea it was. It's more than just fun (actually, fun is always more than just fun). Cities are full of anonymous strangers whom we barely acknowledge, avoid eye-contact and only the most extroverted among us would dare to smile and say 'Hello'. Situations like this puts everyone in a unique situation and transports them from the familiar. I don't doubt that this little performance left everyone feeling more connected.

I've watched this so many times, I'm sure it's a kind of therapy.

Most 'pranks' target an unsuspecting victim in some way. This simply confronted everyone with a delightfully insane scenario. It must have been a wonderful thing to be a part of.

Well, that's always a foregone conclusion, Mel. Children don't have stuff in the way. The fact that the adults were encountering it, whether or not they got it, is priceless. It put something into their day and every one is a slightly different person to the one they were as a result. It has to fight its way through meshes of connections that kids haven't started to build yet. It'll get there... maybe in six months or so, they'll say "WOW!"

What a wonderful idea but I don't think the adult audience appreciated it enough - the kids dug it though!
