Improv Everywhere Created a Giant Boombox in Manhattan That Unleashed a Dance Party When Plugged In

For a recent stunt aptly titled The Giant Boombox, large-scale comedy group Improv Everywhere and partner Target teamed up to create a massive 10' boombox which unleashed a dance party on unsuspecting passersby. They only needed to notice the over-sized red plug, over-sized red outlet, and put two-and-two together. Check it out!

For our latest mission, we placed a 10-foot tall boombox on Pier 17 in Manhattan and waited for unsuspecting people to plug it in. Real New Yorkers worked together to carry the 160-foot long cord across the pier to an oversized outlet. Once the boombox was plugged in, everyone was surprised by a massive holiday dance party with 100 acrobatic dancers, thousands of Christmas lights placed on two historic ships, and 10 hidden snow machines.

Check out the stunt's recap page for more info on how they pulled it off.
