Star Wars takes the NYC Subway

Improv Everywhere takes over a NYC subway car again! This time they reenact the first Princess Leia and Darth Vader scene from “Star Wars”. I wish I was on that train ride. And of course it’s on the 6 train which is I train I take to go home! All I ever see are the usual beggars, “singers”, crazies, vain young men doing pull ups on the bars, and little kids selling candy for their “basketball team”.

It’s great to see the passengers are getting a kick out of it, since New Yorkers usually wear the “minding-my-business-and-you-should-too” stone cold face on subways. Color me guilty. I especially like the “Galactic Takeover for Dummies” Princess Leia is reading. Is that for sale in Barnes and Nobles? If not it should be.

Improv Everywhere also did the No-Pants Subway Ride, Frozen Grand Central, Food Court the Musical, and staged a scene from “Ghostbusters” in the New York Public Library… *sigh* where am I when all this awesomeness commences?


  1. This stuff never happens to me on the train. Instead I get the preachers, the weirdos and the kids saying “I’m selling candy to stop me from killing you guys.” Still you got to love the random things in NYC!


  2. Wow, that is crazy and kinda of scary. Riding the subway I saw a guy who painted his face gold, had on a gold/yellow suit, and he was carrying a saxaphone back in the ’70’s. (A brother) He said his spaceship crashed landed on earth and he needed cash to fix his space ship. He did played the sax for us. It sounded awful, folks gave him money so he would stop playing.
    That is the funniest thing I saw on the subway. We did not have much imagination back then during the dark days.
    But the Star Wars thing is super crazy!!


  3. Absolutely crazy! I just showed people at work. They were dying laughing. I would have been rolling on that train.
