For our latest mission, professional ballet performers pose as break dancers in New York’s Washington Square Park. The men hype up their tumbling routine to a gathered crowd before realizing they brought the “wrong music.” The crowd is surprised as they slowly realize the performer’s hidden talents.

This project was a collaboration with YouTube’s new Field Day channel. Check out our video on the Field Day channel that features parts of this mission as well as our Groundskeeper Acrobats mission.

For our latest mission, we staged a series of surprises at the porta potty area of the Governors Ball music festival in New York. When random concertgoers opened our “magical” porta potty, they were surprised by a ridiculous number of performers streaming out of the door.

For our latest mission, six groundskeepers tending to the Bryant Park lawn suddenly transformed into tumblers and acrobats, surprising everyone in the park with an unexpected routine. After their brief performance ended, the groundskeepers immediately went back to their lawn work.

We worked with Bryant Park to stage this mission right before the opening of the lawn for the season. The new lawn is now open to everyone, but right before the rope was taken down, we had the opportunity to stage this surprise.

This project was a collaboration with YouTube’s new Field Day channel. Check out our video on the Field Day channel that features parts of this mission as well as two upcoming missions we’ll be releasing later this summer.

For our latest mission, we delivered 20 pizzas to a random subway car. Two men posing as MTA officials told passengers that their specific E-train car was determined to be the most courteous car in the entire system, and in recognition of their good behavior they were being rewarded with a pizza party. When the train pulled into the next station, eight pizza guys entered, delivering 20 pizzas in warming bags.
