On a less serious note from my recent posts, here are some funny Matrix parodies that I found during a study break:
Improv Everywhere has done a bunch of cool stuff. In their recent mission, entitled Best Game Ever, they send a NBC major league filming crew/stage, the Goodyear Blimp, and a bunch of staged fans to a little league game in Hermosa Beach, California. This is what one mother wrote to Improv Everywhere:
I believe you guys are behind the “Hermosa Beach Little League” taping that took place Saturday, March 10th, 2007. The parents will be talking about this for a long time… the kids even longer. My son was a pitcher on the Lugnuts. We had a long/tough season last year. Saturday made up for everything. I want to sincerely thank you for making Saturday so unbelievable. It was like a birthday, Christmas, and New Years Eve captured in a few amazing hours. Thanks a million for a once in a lifetime opportunity.
The kids looked really excited. What an experience for them!
Here’s a story about a guy who attempted to visit all Starbucks stores in Manhattan in 24 hours.
Turns out, there are 176 stores in Manhattan, but a few of those, like the one in J.P. Morgan’s headquarters, are off limits to the public. So Malkoff, a comedian who works as the audience coordinator at The Colbert Report, set out to hit all the stores he could—171 of them—in 24 hours, saving his $369.14 in receipts to prove it.
And here’s the play-by-play diary of his adventures.
This blog has some more details and a video of feat. This guy writes, “What’s amazing about this, is not that someone was crazy enough to try such a feat – but the fact there are actually 171 Starbucks outlets packed into 23 square miles.”
