In this political season, the sight of microphones at a podium flanked by American flags usually means we’re going to hear a lot of speechifying.
But what if a fake press conference were set up and the speakers apparently hadn’t shown up yet?
In this fun prank video from Improv Everywhere, unsuspecting passersby approach the microphones. They’re immediately joined by fictional security personnel and reporters.
The latter is a curious horde that needs to know such juicy tidbits as, “How do you respond to allegations that you drink milk directly from the carton?”
Imagine having to deal with that on the campaign trail everyday.
