The Yes Men Fix the World

Highly, highly, highly recommended.

I swear, we need a new word to describe the odd art these guys practice. Spoof, prank, parody, satire, impersonation, guerrilla theater—none of these really capture their astounding ability to blend in at gatherings of the rich and powerful (and of toadies of the rich and powerful), to fake their way onto TV, to convincingly imitate the websites and media outlets of corporate civilization, etc. "Identity Correction" just doesn't cut it, I think. "Deconstructive Mimicry"?

Here's a DN! segment about the film from last July:

Again, highly recommended.
