Best Game Ever

For our latest mission, we turned a little league baseball game in Hermosa Beach, California into a major league event. Enjoy the video below and then go behind the scenes with our mission report and photos.

Featuring: Agents Todd, Appel, Blumenthal, Newell, Sessler, Minton, Fair, Mercer, Cicci, Dippold, Park, DBlumenthal, Lewis, Thorn, Parker + more.
Digital Video: Agent Carbone

In order to pull this mission off we worked with the commissioner of the Hermosa Beach Little League. The commissioner provided us with the names, numbers, and batting order of all of the players for both teams. He told us the 2 PM game between the Mudcats and the Lugnuts would be ideal for our mission, and allowed us to arrive early to set up all of our equipment. He was the only person involved with the league who knew what was going to happen. The players, coaches, and parents were kept completely in the dark.

The league’s games are six innings, and we planned our mission to unfold slowly, heightening with each passing inning. As the game started, the only unusual thing anyone could notice was a large truck parked just pass the outfield wall (housing our jumbotron to be revealed later.) All of the cameras remained hidden away.


Agent Fair screams for her favorite lugnut

In the bottom of the first inning, our agents started to arrive. We told everyone to wear either red or black, the team colors for the Mudcats and Lugnuts. The commissioner gave us baseball caps for both teams, which we passed out to our agents. In a typical game, the stands are completely empty as the player’s parents sit in lawn chairs right next to the field. By the end of the first inning all of our agents were in the stands cheering like crazy for the teams.


Agents Sessler, Newell, and Blumenthal

Three agents played the role of crazy shirtless dudes, painting “Mudcats” across their bare chests. These fans were particularly vocal in getting chants together. The players started looking back at the crowd with puzzled expressions. A few in the dugout peered around the corner to see what was going on. The game was in progress, so they had no choice but to keep playing and decide to figure it out later.


Agent Mercer vends peanuts

At the top of the 2nd inning, vendors started appearing in the crowd, “selling” peanuts and popcorn to the fans and parents. (They were free.)


Agent Cicci gives out programs

The commissioner also got us “baseball card” photos of each of the players. Using these photos we were able to put together a full color program of the day’s game. Agent Cicci walked through the audience handing out the programs. Excited parents kept asking him who he was and how he had put the program together, but he just shrugged and said, “I just work for the field. It’s a big game today.”

At the top of the 3rd inning, things really started to change as we revealed that NBC Sports was covering the game live, with the unveiling of our huge jumbotron in the outfield.


The jumbotron rose mechanically from the truck


The Mudcat dugout reacts to the jumbotron

We collaborated with NBC Sports on this mission, and they took care of renting the jumbotron and hiring legendary sportscaster Jim Gray to call the game. Jim ran the play-by-play and I served as his color man. The two of us sat in a booth at the back of the stands, and we were able to make announcements on the field’s PA system. It was tons of fun watching the players react as the jumbotron rose in the outfield. The game had to momentarily stop as everyone settled down.


“It’s a beautiful day for baseball!”

The jumbotron broadcast live footage from the game, including instant replays, and we projected photos of each player as he came up to bat.

In the next inning, mascots for both teams arrived. We weren’t able to find “mudcat” or “lugnut” costumes, so we just went with random animals that fit the teams colors.


The “Nutty” Chicken


The “Muddy” Bear

The younger brothers and sisters of the players on the field had a great time interacting with our mascots, although some Lugnut fans got a little violent with the Mudcat bear, chasing and hitting him repeatedly.

For our final touch, we worked with NBC Sports to get the Goodyear blimp to fly over the game and film the action from above. As it turned out, the blimp’s home base was just a few miles from Hermosa Beach, and they were able to fly over us on their way to another game. It was an unusually foggy afternoon, and we were terrified that the blimp wouldn’t be seen. They ended up flying in extra low to avoid the fog.

The blimp has an LED screen on the bottom of it, and we had them project, “Go Mudcats! Go Lugnuts! Welcome to the big league!”

The crowd cheered for the blimp and parents started walking around asking our fake fans what was going on. Our agents insisted the game was being broadcast live on NBC and that they were just big fans of the Mudcats and Lugnuts. The parents couldn’t get an answer as to why it was happening, so they just sat back and enjoyed the fun. A few parents mentioned they wished they were home so they could see it live on TV.

When the game was over, our fans sought out autographs from the players.

The day ended with a press conference with both teams. Agents Thorn and Dippold played journalists and grilled the players. Here’s a short video clip of the conference:

A few days later, I got an email from a parent (who must have found Improv Everywhere via Google search):

I believe you guys are behind the “Hermosa Beach Little League” taping that took place Saturday, March 10th, 2007. The parents will be talking about this for a long time… the kids even longer. My son was a pitcher on the Lugnuts. We had a long/tough season last year. Saturday made up for everything. I want to sincerely thank you for making Saturday so unbelievable. It was like a birthday, Christmas, and New Years Eve captured in a few amazing hours. Thanks a million for a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Mission Accomplished

    Very cute, very very cute.

    Only one question,
    why doesn’t this happen to me! Haha

    Outstanding planning though, especially with NBC Sports and the Goodyear Blimp!

  2. Amy says:

    This is AWESOME.

  3. Jeff Lin says:

    Oh wow, this is outstanding.

    You even got to collaborate with NBC and even the Goodyear blimp! Who would’ve thought that this small improv group could blossom into an international phenomenon, and have the power to do all these crazy things.

    This great once again. All these years, and I still want to live in New York just to be able to take part in this.

  4. tqe / Adam says:

    you guys are amazing.

  5. Anonymous says:

    That is honestly the best goddamn thing I’ve read on the internet in awhile.

  6. Charlie Todd says:

    Comments are fixed now. Sorry they weren’t working for some browsers for a bit there.

  7. M. L. says:

    Awesome. I thought the Jumbotron was outrageous but then you just had to have the Goodyear blimp fly by. Good work on the coordination.

  8. michele says:

    This so awesome. As a parent of a little leaguer, I can just imagine the reaction from the kids. Great job.

  9. mb says:

    Amazing! Not only using their great ideas to go pantless on the subway, but actually making peoples life a little bit happier!

  10. Con says:

    NICE!!!!!

  11. Harriett says:

    This is the best one ever Charlie, Hands Down!

  12. Jessica says:

    I rarely type “lol” but you guys deserve it. A GIANT LOL to all of you. I’ve been following all of your missions for years and for some reason, this one had me in hysterics more than any other has!

    Brilliant work!

  13. Brian says:

    Go Lugnuts! Go Mudcats! I can’t believe you actually went so far with this one as to get the jumbotron, Jim Gray, and the friggin’ Good Year Blimp!?!??!! Crazy awesome. When’s the next game?!

  14. Mac says:

    Amazing job guys. I wish we had guys like you around when I was in the little league, haha!

  15. RAD Moose says:

    Best Game EVAR!

    Awesome! Just when you thought it couldn’t get better, something else pops up….. I was impressed BEFORE the Jumbotron, NBC Sports and the Good Year Blimp.. but my oh my.. everything kept getting better.

  16. Gabrielle says:

    That’s great that NBC “cooperated.” Mission accomplished, as always. :)

  17. I seriously can’t believe you guys pulled this off! We gotta get something amazing like this to happen in Boston!

  18. Steve D. says:

    Is it coincidence that Todd rhymes with god?

    I don’t think so.

    This brought tears to my eyes.

  19. murrayfurry says:

    I didn’t think IE could top Where’s Rob and The Best Gig Ever, this is like a mashup of those Improvs. You guys are great, I wished I could’ve been there, or as an Agent!

  20. Just completely awesome! My god. The hidden jumbotron rises-up from a truck?! Are you kidding me?!
    If I had been in the stands, I would have gone APESHIT.

  21. Sarcasma58 says:

    What a wonderful memory to gift these children and their families with. Also, kudos to NBC and the Goodyear Blimp folks for their contributions to this most extraordinary event. It was a pleasure to read about it. These young boys will be telling their grandchildren about this someday! Improv Everywhere is the best!

  22. Ben says:

    That’s awesome!!!

  23. Kathleen says:

    Just when I didn’t think I could love IE anymore… This mission definitely makes my top five, especially as a former little leaguer and forever baseball fan. I was smiling from ear to ear reading it. Good luck thinking of something to top this!

  24. net says:

    You guys are awesome!

  25. Ryan says:

    That was awesome…. wow working with NBC and having the Blimp. Awesome job guys the kids had to love that. Just awesome….

  26. Grace says:

    My ancient and abiding love of before-big-biz-baseball came surging back while reading this.

    The way it kept getting topped again and again was just incredible. I actually had tears and laughs going at the same time.

    Amazing and awesome and just all around gorgeous.

    (*Jim Gray* omg….those kids will be even more stoked about that part in about 20 years)

  27. Will Godfrey says:

    An excellent mission.
    For me IE is required viewing to counteract all the bad news we get these days.

    Keep up the good work.

  28. Oscar says:

    Wow…that was…wow.

    Simply amazing. Amazing job, IE!

  29. Jeremy Banks says:

    Wow. You keep topping yourselves. This was amazing.

  30. Helen says:

    you guys are so awesome! you’re getting pretty famous too! you got NBC and Goodyear to work with u guys. awesome job as usual! keep going with the missions to make more people smile!

  31. Tracy says:

    Awesome!! I used to live in Hermosa Beach (actually just a few blocks from that ballfield) and I have a good friend who is a sports producer for NBC in LA. I would have LOVED to help with this one!! Oh well, great idea and I miss Hermosa Beach.

  32. angela hamilton says:

    Wow… this actually made me tear up. How awesome. Yay, IE!

  33. This made me weepy! What a big treat this must have been for those kids. I’m sure it’s a day that they’ll never forget. Way to go IE!

  34. MadDog says:

    Looks like somebody’s budget increased!

  35. LN says:

    Reading this mission report, I had a grin from ear to ear the whole entire time. I may have also teared up a little at the email from the parent.

    This mission wins!

  36. gena says:

    What a nice idea! I wish someone would do that for our kids!

  37. Noel says:

    I’m from the home of the Lansing Lugnuts minor league team with exactly the same logo. It makes we wonder who stole the design from whom…

    On second thought, I’m sure it was Lansing.

  38. Matt says:

    Awesome :) Great job

  39. Joshua says:

    Rock the freak on! Best mission ever!

  40. Ana says:

    Cute mission.

    Charlie, did you move to LA? If so, I will be very sad. The past few things you’ve posted have taken place in LA.

  41. Todd Bradley says:

    Another outstanding job, Improv Everywhere.

  42. Bob says:

    You guys are the best. Not only do you put on awesome shows, they all are about happy things. The subway series, this one, they are all just pure fun. Thanks so much!

  43. Matthew Flaschen says:

    Great mission. It was hilarious, and it sounds like the kids had a good time. Also, “A few parents mentioned they wished they were home so they could see it live on TV.” is funny on many levels.

  44. Robert C. says:

    Who would have thought you would use your powers for good? You made a a lot of kids and parents happy. I’d like to see a few more of these types of missions where you do good things for people. Keep up the good work!

  45. Heather says:

    You know when you are home by yourself and you don’t usually laugh out loud? I laugh out loud to you guys every single time! What a great day for all those kids! Fabulous job!

  46. Diane says:

    WELL! You guys sure have come a long way! Pretty soon you’ll be TURNING DOWN celeberties who want to work on your missions!!

  47. kara says:

    Wow… just wow! You made me smile and brought tears to my eyes. Those kids and parents will remember that day forever. What a wonderful group of people you are!

  48. JoelG says:

    Absolutely, frickin’ awesome. You guys rock! That was totally the best “Best (*) Ever” yet!

  49. Agent Allicat says:

    I love you guys more than ever. This is my favorite sort of mission, and I think it’s what you do best – go somewhere ordinary and make someone’s day a whole lot cooler. You’ve transcended pranking, and made it into an art, a force for good. Keep it up!

    Incidentally, what’s a mudcat?

  50. Ron Smith says:

    That was awesome. Great job

  51. dave says:

    interesting scene caused. what about the children who will find out that it wasn’t really broadcast on NBC or that the “fans” were actors? I can see how this could be see as an inside joke played on the little leaguers, for the entertainment of both sides (improveverywhere and the kids).

  52. Renata says:

    Brilliant. You really made their day. You guys should come back to NYC and do more stuff there! I’d really love to get more involved!

  53. Vidiot says:

    So very, very cool.

  54. the eternalist says:

    Yes, Todd does rhyme w/God, and apparently for a reason. IE, i love you all and the work you do, and i wish you the best. peace and prosperity. PS – @ Agent Allicat: mudcat is a synonym for catfish (esp. the larger ones) in some parts of the South.

  55. agent bruno says:

    WOW! From such humble beginnings in NYC to the Goodyear ferakin’ blimp as a the world’s largest prop! You guys have outdone yourselves. Keep it comin’!!

  56. Deb Geisler says:

    Thank you for sharing this with all of us. What a joyous mission this was!

  57. Gabriella says:

    I don’t know why I but I started crying through the whole report. I’ve been following all your missions for a long time now and this one touched me the most as really affecting someones life. You all did something really good and I’m so glad to have seen it.

  58. meowbooks says:

    That is incredibly sweet! Kudos to NBC and the Goodyear blimp as well.

  59. Jane Kula says:

    Congratulations, Charlie and agents! This Little League Baseball Mission was awesome! The whole Kula family admires your creative genius. Wishing you much success in your future endeavors.

  60. KMC says:

    Dang, how I love you guys.

  61. lulu says:

    wow, ahaha talk about an awesome mission. i can only imagine how those kids would feel…..REALLY AMAZING. holy crap..i can’t stop smiling…something about this just makes me so happy….but probably not even half as happy as all those kids. good job guys!

  62. Orvis says:

    I grow more and more impressed with your goodwill mission every single day, Agent Todd. You are truly an exemplary person with the means and the manpower to cause scenes for the country and create happiness all around. I have such respect for you, sir.

  63. pete says:

    Nice job guys and gals! Made a lot of people really happy that day!

  64. Brian King says:

    When are you guys going to finish with this overproduced schlock, and get back to what you’re good at?

    The mission was an awesome idea, but your execution is absolutely bastardized. You’re supposed to be Improv Everywhere, not some mediocre hidden camera show to fill in timeslots on primetime TV.

  65. Sonja says:

    WOW! That is so wonderful you brought tears to my eyes. WOW!

  66. Jeff Smick says:

    Absolutely the best mission ever. What an amazing thing to do for those kids.

  67. Fred says:

    Are these the pilot missions you guys did last year with NBC that were not picked up by the network? NBC should have picked it up. The musical chair and this one are good prank to be on national tv

  68. Shoe Dude says:

    wow. just wow
    that was pretty awesome, ” ’cause most kids don’t get to be on the jumbo-tron “

  69. Edward says:

    Thank you for doing this. I can’t think of anything else to write. Except you’re all awesome.

  70. Thomas (TACo) says:

    I have to say, this was a great improv. Using an event. Any event and exagerating the atmosphere thereby increasing the excitement, enjoyment, and overall impact of the event is just awesome.

  71. crying and laughing all at once says:

    wow. thanks,.. this one was really wonderful. It made my day a bit brighter, too… to know folks out there still do really good stuff for laughs.keep it coming.

  72. Tom says:

    Did the appreciative parent of the pitcher, get the date year wrong (’07) on the taping date, or did you guys run into some problem with releasing it, that just got cleared up?

  73. Kyle Eppard says:

    Of the Improv Everywhere projects that I’ve seen, this one is definitely one of the best. Great job!

  74. Zontan says:

    You guys are so ridiculously awesome that I can’t even describe it. Period.

  75. Mary says:

    So funny!

    Nice one ;)

  76. NickM says:

    that was some funny stuff.. right up my alley!! :)

  77. kpfeif says:

    Not only was it enjoyable for the viewer, but you made a bunch of kids’ years. Simply awesome.

  78. lazyj5 says:

    that is the way the game is played,fun forever

  79. Ray Irwin says:

    That was Great. You know those kids will remeber this for a long time.

  80. David says:

    Epic Win!

  81. TeamPriapism says:

    This rocks so hard it defies adjectives and fancy words. It’s great to see someone doing pranks that are funny and original without just taking advantage of the attempted kindness of strangers (Jackass, and every prank show on TV). The problem is now you’ve set the bar so high, how can you top it?

  82. Peter says:

    Hilarious

  83. Squonk says:

    I’m glad I took the time to read the comments here. For a few minutes I was thinking I might have been the only one with tears in my eyes after watching you make a lifelong memory for these children.

  84. Jennifer says:

    I think this is one of the best missions I’ve seen so far. I love how everything just came together to make an amazing memory for the kids. AWESOME.

  85. bonecows says:

    This was awesome. I’m a big fan of IE and this was my favourite mission. I’m pretty sure this moment will be cherished for a long time by those kids and parents. You guys are trully amazing.

  86. Court says:

    You guys are awesome. Every new event you host is truly exceptional!

  87. mike says:

    AWESOME!

  88. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next. Please, oh please….can we start something in Italy???

  89. Jim says:

    I actually thought this was pretty lame. It was too much, and so it lost the grit and awkwardness that makes other missions so cool. I think if you try to hard to make people happy, it all feels a bit saccharine.

  90. negaduck says:

    You guys are amazing. These kids will NEVER forget this. Thanks for showing us how it can be done.

  91. Mike L says:

    Wow, once again outstanding and amazing. Made my day to watch this!

  92. Haxzaw says:

    NICE!!!…nuff said

  93. George Bell says:

    “A few parents mentioned they wished they were home so they could see it live on TV.” – love it

  94. Liza says:

    At work so I can’t watch the clip but from the pictures that looks awesome!

    What’s next? Best Wedding Ever?

  95. Michelle says:

    So awesome! Way to go, peoples. :D This is a good way to make sure people don’t forget you!

  96. Stacy says:

    Truly an awesome feat! And done in a way that didn’t upstage the kids and gave them a great memory and story.

    Well done!
    I can’t wait to see what’s next!

  97. PixelMasher says:

    Absolutely fantastic. I was bawling by the end with happy tears. And I’m a big guy that hasn’t cried in years.

    With all the all the crap that’s in the world today, this sort of thing is just beautiful. Keep it up guys!

  98. Durango says:

    What a fabulous thing to do for these kids, they will never forget that day! I truly admire that you folks have created this original, interesting and harmless ‘thing’ you do that pokes fun at human nature and gets lots of people involved..can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

    Here’s an idea.. speed dating, all female participants share the exact same info about themselves…

  99. Matt says:

    Brilliant! My favorite so far.

  100. Laron says:

    This is unbelievably amazing. You guys rock! As a board member for my local little league, I can see how this would positively affect these kids for the rest of their lives.

    You guys are amazing. Thanks for having good things on the internet and in the world.

    Bravo!! (Standing ovation by me!)

  101. robq says:

    CAPITALISM

  102. Sam says:

    I especially enjoyed the comments from people who are unable to appreciate people doing something nice for the kids even if by doing so the group had to deviate from their normal practices.
    I wish I could live as sad of a life as those poor folks.

  103. Drhaggis says:

    Improv Everywhere: Increasing the awesomeness of the world, one “scene” at a time.

  104. Evan Erwin says:

    That was fantastic! Well done IE! :)

  105. Luis says:

    Take me out to the ball game! Take me out to the crowd! Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks!

  106. Nikolai says:

    wonderful. Just a great idea. Thank you

  107. autoegocrat says:

    If more people did things like this, the world would be a really great place to live. Well done.

  108. Amwar says:

    Truly electric improv. My smile is sewn on for the day. Thanks! And keep up the great work and art you create so well.

    Oh, and for some posters: There are plenty of adjectives in the language, so maybe it’s time to get “Awesome” out of your vocabulary. Just an observation.

  109. Mikey says:

    Amazing. You have pulled off something that theese kids will never forget. I thank you from every cell in my body for all of the planning and effort that you put into this. Actions like these will help to heal our society. Again,

    Thank You!

    -Mikey

  110. Emma says:

    Wow, my brother is just obsessed with how cool this mission was! He plays little league baseball and he keeps asking why something like this never happened at one of his games (LOL!)

  111. Zac says:

    I hated it!

    Just kidding, I just wanted to say something different.

    Seriously awesome. Such a terrific event for the kids, the parents and yourselves. You should all fall asleep with satisfied smiles on your faces. You done good.

  112. Jen says:

    I’ve been a fan of you guys for a while, but this one really warmed my heart. What a great mission, to just up the joy in the world. Well done. You guys got me all teary in the middle of work — not fair!

  113. Bethany3cat says:

    I think that this was truly a tour de force (but also quite awe inspiring or, rather, awesome). These kids were old enough to understand the pretense and the reality so that in the moment they felt like stars and in retrospect they will still feel like celebrities.

    I’m with all of you that teared up AND laughed out loud.

    I don’t care if Charlie is doing this for fun or profit. I don’t care if it’s a TV show or random creativity. It is entertainment without a cost — in fact, the participants are rewarded with an experience to remember.

    IE seldom (maybe the Best Buy management team lost a little credibility) inflicts a cost from your unsuspecting audience like Punked or Scare Tactics, and you usually give back a positive memory, a laugh, or both.

  114. Chance says:

    Phenomenal. Kudos. I can’t believe what a great idea this was and how well it was done.

    Chance

  115. You guys definitely stepped it up a notch! NBC, Jim Gray, and the Blimp! It was an interesting departure from your more covert operations, but a nice change of pace.

  116. Shawn M. says:

    You guys made those Little Leaguers lives. I don’t care what they do, who they become, they’ll be 60 and still talking about that. “Remember that day… The Goodyear freakin’ Blimp!”

    Kudos.

  117. Timothy says:

    Oh my god. That was the best improv ever!!!
    Like all of you above me, I was smiling and tearing up at the same time.
    You made my day.

  118. Claire says:

    I got the link through a forum, and I just want to add my congratulations on a great job.

  119. XAQ says:

    I watched this while at work and my eyes started welling up because it’s just so much joy being unexpected given to people with no desire for anything in return. My boss caught me crying and I said I had something in my eye, but I think she’s onto me.

  120. Tall Tree says:

    This is great, improv that makes a difference in kids’ lives! Well planned, well done!

  121. Andi says:

    Long time lurker, first time commenter. That’s the most awesome thing you’ve ever done. Not the funniest, but it’s awesome that you went all the way out for those kids. They will remember that their entire lives! It’s wonderful that you can use your fun little group to do something for others and not just for fun.
    Regardless, I love IE and everything you do, I just thought this was so heartwarming that I had to post how great it was.

  122. Jon Forsythe says:

    Any plans on putting the broadcast and footage from the other cameras onto a DVD? I would love to watch the whole thing from start to finish as if I were re-watching footage from when the White Sox were in the World Series. It would also be then great to give the little leaguers the DVDs as gifts. Great mission IE!

  123. What says:

    Ahhh it’s so nice to have rich parents in the first world.

  124. Fake Rake says:

    Did the appreciative parent of the pitcher, get the date year wrong (’07) on the taping date, or did you guys run into some problem with releasing it, that just got cleared up?

    The <a href=”/missions/”IE missions page lists it as 2007 also, for what it’s worth.

  125. Fake Rake says:

    Oops, I suck at the Internet. I meant to link to the IE missions page for real, not dump random HTML into the page. Sorry about that.

  126. Angel says:

    To the comment that insinuated that the kids might undergo some sort of hardship when they “discover” that the fans were actors, etc…

    Every last person that was in on the event (the scene, if you will) was there because they wanted to make a memorable event for those kids. Just because they were not “real” fans prior to the game (I can’t speak for after, some participants may have become converts) does not mean that their desire to have a positive impact on every last person there was fake.

    The Mudcats and the Lugnuts had a memorable game. And they’ll remember it for the rest of their lives as a positive experience. And that is all that matters. Taking one slice out of time and making the most out of it, injecting some more heart. Expensive cameras and graphics and all.

  127. Sorc says:

    Amazing! Thank you!

  128. TheRedBerrys says:

    Great job, guys.

    I just wonder how long it will be before “This American Life” does a story on how “hurt” the little leaguers are that the terrible improv group “made fun of” and “mocked” them.

  129. Dabbsy says:

    YAAAAAAAY!!!!! Tehehe, this is the best thing ever!!!

  130. beChange says:

    Once again, Improv Everywhere shows how absolutely awesome and inspired they are. Congratulations on a successful mission. I think this was your best idea yet.

  131. Autolycus says:

    A testament to the goodness in mankind. Mission achieved :)

  132. Chalk up another Cryer says:

    I love you guys so much. You really made an impact on those kids’ lives that day… nothing is cooler than improvs like these. I try to do interesting things to spice up peoples’ monotonous lives around here, but a lone person can’t accomplish as much as a large, organized group. I really would love to join the team.

  133. Diana says:

    I’ve been reading your missions for a while and this one just shows… it keeps getting better! Thanks for all the hard work guys. Reading this site always makes my day. =)

  134. Vaytan says:

    you guys and gals are the greatest !

  135. Tom says:

    This was absolutely FANTASTIC! Great concept, great execution, and a totally random positive thing to inject into an unsuspecting world :-)

  136. BW says:

    Dang you guys! I’m sitting here blubbering like a baby, remembering how much I loved baseball as a kid and wishing I was 10 years old again. Me and my best friend in 3rd grade would play home run derby for hours, pretending to be our favorite players (Jim Palmer of the Orioles and Kenny Landreaux of the Twins and Dodgers). This brought it all back again – awesome, totally awesome.

  137. Jeff says:

    Your stunts are always hilarious, but this is a work of art; a majestic account of humanity’s ability to work miracles. Thank you.

  138. Jasmine says:

    OMG. This is abosolutely AMAZING! You guys better get some MAJOR news coverage from this. I can’t imagine a better way to make people’s day. I am a theater major, so I am all for living in the moment. I hope one day I can take part in one of these preformances. It would make my life!

  139. Eric says:

    Bravo. Brilliant as always. :-D

  140. Josh says:

    WOW!!! You guys have grown so much :) – full dance numbers and musical performances – to *THIS* – Simply awesome – those kids will never forget it!

  141. Nabukadnezar says:

    improveverywhere is the most awesome thing ever!!

  142. Alli says:

    I’ve followed you guys for a while now, and you always have given me a chuckle. But this was above and beyond; without a doubt one of the most amazing things I have ever seen. Didn’t know whether to laugh or cry, but knew I needed to comment. Trust me when I say you all made an huge impact on the lives of a lot of people that day; one they will take with them always. And not just the kids.

  143. Alli says:

    Whoops; cat entered my comment before I was done:

    What I wanted to say was:

    God forbid my child ever becomes terminally ill and eligible for the Make a Wish Foundation. The heck with calling them; I’ll be calling Improv Everywhere.

  144. Danny says:

    Rob should have shown up, lost from his running adventure and proceeded to get lost again in the stands.

  145. siva says:

    That was AweSOME!!!

  146. Harmony says:

    What a hoot! Great job, guys. Man… That ups the ante!

  147. Krystal B says:

    That’s awesome! It’s nice to see something fun spirited like this, and it must have totally made the day for all those kids and parents. Maybe a few of them will even make it to the big league someday, now that they’ve had a taste of the limelight. :)

  148. Alicia says:

    This was beyond awesome. I got goosebumps looking at how excited the kids where about the whole thing, and I have to admit I even got a little misty-eyed at the end.

    Awesome mission. I hope I can be an agent someday ;)

  149. Pavan says:

    Awesome job, you guys really made a huge impression on those little kids.

  150. BJS says:

    You guys have really out-done yourselves. These kids must have felt 10-feet tall (and not because they were on a JumboTron!). Good job on changing these kids’ lives!

  151. max says:

    this guys a fucking genius

  152. jaypee says:

    Well done with this one guys! Love what you do all over!

  153. JokinSu says:

    Amazing. Fantastic. The dream of all young baseball players :-)

  154. Dave Greiman says:

    Nicely done!

  155. FireLynx says:

    There was a similar thing going on in Sweden on the 22nd of March.

    Same deal, 10y/os playing soccer, they had no idea that they would get 300 more people cheering on them. No NBC stuff and no blimps, just people.

  156. Alex says:

    That’s probably the best Improv I’ve ever seen. Congrats to all the guys who set this up, AWESOME.

  157. Shepy says:

    Really made me smile, i bet the kids days were made by this, well done.

    ~Shepy

  158. Stephen says:

    Amazing. I know it made their day.

  159. Agent Callie says:

    Best Mission Ever! Ok Charlie, you made me cry. Not only a funny mission, but one that made the teams & their families day. Absolutely amazing, I’m floored by all the thought put into it.
    A+++++++ for how special you made those kids feel.

  160. Leah says:

    Maybe I’m a big softy, but this totally made me cry. What a wonderful event! I think it’s really awesome to support kids’ sports events, and what better way than to make them feel special? Huge kudos!

  161. CG says:

    AWESOME JOB! Made me think back to my Little League Days and how blown away I would have been to have something like this happen at one of my games.

  162. Jim Leonard says:

    That day had to be the most incredible eaperience the players, parents and coaches ever had. I can only imagine how my children would have reacted if they had gotten gaught up in a production like that. I believe I know the answer to that, though. Great job!

  163. Stephanie says:

    I think I’m in love with you guys! You are amazing. Great job!

  164. CUBUS says:

    ooh, i would like to be one of this child, it have to be amazing playing with this kind of espectators.
    great day for the childs and their parents.

  165. Jonas says:

    Leah: Yeah, me too. Real, actual tears… :)

    That was absolutely beautiful.

    Thanks!

  166. Stalwart says:

    You make world a better place

  167. Scaramouche says:

    Guys, what you did was wonderful and beautiful because you made an unforgettable day for those little boys.

  168. Camille says:

    This is so adorably cute :)

  169. greggerm says:

    From the I.E. site, looks as though this was performed back in March 2007. Also from the I.E. site, they were working with NBC on a pilot version of the show for national broadcast. This must be one of the pranks they lined up with the network for use in the pilot. The financial backing needed, the clearance to use the NBC logos… and it would also explain why a year-old prank was just published this week – NBC probably needed to “release” the prank to I.E. given they weren’t going to pick up the show.

    All told though – it was a great bit. I wish I was there to witness it in person!!

  170. JV Andres says:

    I’ve been following ya’ll off and on for a few years and I must say that the increasing scale of your missions has not diminished your creative spark or hilarity. Amazing mission and job well done.

  171. Russell says:

    Someone posted this on another board I belong to. This is hands down one of the classiest and most thoughtful things I have seen someone do for a bunch of kids, even if it was “just a stunt”

    I applaud you, ladies and gentlemen … brilliant ….

  172. Matt says:

    Totally amazing, one of those things that makes you go all warm and tingly inside.

  173. Nerd Muffin says:

    That probably boosted their confidence quite a bit.

  174. Larry Tew says:

    Way Cool….These kids were changed forever….What a blessing.
    What a great idea and what a great country.

  175. Cheddarben says:

    Nice work. It would have been cool to see an ump/manager fight.

  176. IE Junkie says:

    Is this heaven? No, it’s Hermosa Beach. Thanks for turning this day into a Little League Field of Dreams.

  177. SUPERCHARGED LOVE says:

    Improv Everywhere,

    If I weren’t so sleepy, I would still have chills running up my spine! I’m an artist, and I’ve thought for a long, long time about how so much art, in a sense, is “take it or leave it”. Many people will never stop and look just to take things in. I realized what I wanted was to do things that would speak straight to peoples’ hearts in ways hard to ignore. Unbelievable as it may sound, one of the things I thought of was exactly what you have done here, and I know good and well this was your own original idea, too. That makes it even better because I never thought I could “possess” or “own” such a great idea, anyway. It came to me because I think little kids are the coolest people there are in the world. Celebrities have nothing on the littlest and brightest of people, who are still pure soul. No one deserves what you did more than kids. They need unexpected and genuine kindness from the world around them, and they need unexpected and personal reasons to be truly happy. Like when they think they’re just another kid, and the world is confusing and scary, but one night dozens of strangers cheered them on from the stands like they were heroes. The kind of thing they think only happens in a dream. The memory of this will give them strength for the rest of their lives. I would like to make a special request that you do this once a year at a random little league event, even if, for you, a repeat may not be improvisation. It just can’t be done too much. The blimp and jumbotron may be hard to swing again, but I don’t even think those were the best part. The best part is that both teams were cheered on by people who were there just for them, for the fun of it, not for pressure or competition or caring who wins. This is truly mind-blowing for me to see, and it is almost mystical that this beautiful idea found you as well. I am beyond thrilled, I never expected a surprise like this, and you pulled it off in such an amazing way. Thank you.

  178. Y. says:

    This looks awesome.
    I think you guys probably have a seat in heaven reserved because of this.

  179. miles says:

    Great!! fantastico!! fenomeno!!!!!! los crios lo fliparon seguro!!!! good job

  180. Pam Fowler says:

    way cool!!! It is great to see kids having a great time and enjoing being kids, They will remember that day and talk about if for many years to come. GREAT JOB GUYS!!!

  181. pimpim says:

    Great job

  182. DavisMcDavis says:

    This is sooo great! I really like the that it’s still “Improv Everywhere,” but at the same time you really did a nice thing for these kids that they will enjoy and remember. Fantastic!

  183. Eric Lee says:

    Let me stand and applaud YOU for such an awesome bit of work on the Big/Little League game. My hat is off to you. I’m certain no one who was there that day will ever forget it. Just watching your YouTube video brought a big smile to my face.

    Wonderful practical humor like that, that adds to everyone’s enjoyment rather than at someone’s expense is rare and appreciated.

    If youre ever doing anything like that again…count me in.

  184. Kelly says:

    Awwww… That was really sweet. Cute kids. Nice job guys!

  185. Solkef says:

    Wow, that was cool. I loved your other missions, but this one is specially cool. You went all the way for these kids and this shows that you guy’s are not just clowns. I loved your concepts before, but now you have my respect.

  186. DJ Drummond says:

    Outstanding! Well done! Although I sympathize with the Lugnuts coach who says the next few games would be a real letdown.

  187. Dave S says:

    I love all of IE’s stuff, and this latest performance is a tugger. It starts out great, and then I see that they’ve brought out a mockup of the Jumbotron. Then I think, “Geez, they got a guy that looks just like Jim Gray too.” Just when I realize that it really is Jim Grey calling the game, here comes the Goodyear Blimp. I first think that it must be digital editing, but then the kids and parents are pointing, seeing it too. Unbelieveable. Great filming, felt like I was there.

    I wrote this to thank Charlie Todd and all his agents (in this clip and everywhere else), and Jim Gray and all the people at NBC and the Goodyear Blimp who worked as unsung heroes to make this bit of fantasy come true. Maybe I’m just a viewer of a little clip on the internet, but it was my best game ever also.

  188. Lisa says:

    That was so incredibly cool of you. You folks rock.

  189. Mary says:

    I’ve read this several times today. I’ve cried every single time. Do you have ANY idea how much you tilted the balance of good in the world, with this?

  190. Andi says:

    For everyone who decided to be real party poopers and yap about how “this isn’t improv”, go back up to the top of this very page and read the About Us statement.

    To Charlie Todd and the crew of agents who worked on this mission: Thank you, you made my night.

  191. Melanie says:

    I love all of the missions that this group does, but this one is one of my favorites because of the pure good in it. To be out there for the kids like that… what an incredible experience & memory for kids and parents. I love it because it is such an act of humans supporting other humans… and we don’t see nearly enough of that these days.

  192. Agent Chippy says:

    That was so fantastic – now I just have to have kids and then have that happen to them.

  193. Cheri says:

    This, absolutely rocks. Random acts of kinds (big and small!) will change the world!

  194. Ron Hyer says:

    I only wish I could have been there! Congrats all around!

  195. baldeagle says:

    Very Cool! I’m glad a member of eaglepost linked to this. It made my day!

  196. Dee Cook says:

    Thanks a million, guys, this is something none of these kids will EVER forget – great job! We can all do little acts of kindness in our own lives every day.

  197. Betsy says:

    Wow. You guys made me cry. These kids will remember this game forever. Incredible.

  198. Matt says:

    Very funny, sweet, heartwarming, and exceptionally pulled off.

    My hat is off to you, improveverywhere.

  199. Martin says:

    U guys are so cool

    This brought tears to my eyes.

  200. A dad says:

    I’ve never seen your work before, but I will now look it all up. That was just so special for those kids and their parents. The looks on all their faces from begining to end was priceless. That meant so much to those kids; they work hard at school and at their extracuricular stuff for often little reward, and tend to get a bit disallusioned and uninterested in those things. What an absolutely wonderful way to positivly reinforce them all, and keep their enthusiasm up for the game as well as the work they put into it. All kids need is a little support and positive reinforcement in life….you guys went over the top and really made the day for all those people….It’s not often I smile while tearing up.

    Just Awsome

  201. La recreación fue excelente. Un saludos cordial desde Chile sudamerica. The recreaction was unbelive, is a pleasure meet your organization. Best regards from Chile Southamerica.

  202. What an amazing mission guys. I’m an italian baseball player and in my country baseball is quite like a little league. For us it would be a dream being involved in something like that… GORGEOUS.

    Cheers from Italy.

    Nyk

  203. fish says:

    It made me cry. Brilliant.

  204. sstann says:

    What a wonderful memory you gave the children and their parents… way to go!!!!!
    BAM (Building A Memory) so you certainly know how to BAM

  205. natalie says:

    haha you guys are taking it to the next level haha i love it.

  206. Iona says:

    By far your cutest mission yet. Thanks so much for all of these – whenever another comes out it always makes my day.

    Keep up the amazing work guys.

  207. Paul says:

    That’s fantastic. You guys should enlist the help of companies and corporations more often…

  208. Krrazy says:

    Once again, you’ve given me warm fuzzies inside, IE, and lots of laughs and happiness!

    Thank you!
    Keep doing what you do best! I’ll be watching.

  209. TaraQin says:

    Aww… I’m so touched. Sniff. You guys brought smiles to e children and their parents.

    Awesome work!

  210. Dr Nic says:

    Beautiful to watch.

  211. seawallrunner says:

    what a beautiful thing to do. what a great story, what great planning and what great execution.

  212. Drew says:

    I can’t imagine how cool that would’ve been as a little league player. You guys did something that these kids will talk about for, literally, the rest of their lives. Thats pretty cool.

  213. Anon. says:

    I was on the mudcats that year. That was the only game i missed that season…

  214. matt says:

    THAT WAS THE BEST DAY of my life i was the catcher for the mud cats

  215. Steve Cuss says:

    Guys,

    this should be named “Best Mission Ever” because it was fun for us youtube watchers and a lifelong memory for those kids. What a killer idea this was!

  216. me says:

    This is so fantastic! As a long time rec league youth baseball coach, I can’t tell you how jealous I am that one of my teams weren’t chosen for this stunt.

    I can imagine perfectly how great a day you made for those kids!

    Well done!

  217. Danielsard says:

    That’s simply AMAZING!! this kind of opportunity doesn’t happen everyday and for those few hours, you guys gave a great gift to both parents and children!!

  218. Jacky Woo says:

    This is freaking awesome! Ten thumbs up if i even have them. HA!

  219. nabmac says:

    Awwww… you lot are brilliant! The planning of this is admirable, and the pictures of the kids signing autographs makes me feel all fuzzy inside. Very well done!

  220. Anna says:

    That was the cutest thing ever… This is one of my favorites from all of you because you gave that team something they will never forget. Awesome!!!

  221. Sharlyn says:

    Brilliant! That looked like a lot of fun :)

  222. I Love ImprovEverywhere says:

    You guys are so sweet.
    Improv Everwhere: making the world a better place, one spontaneous event at a time.

  223. Ashley says:

    This is one of you best yet! =D

  224. Sharlyn says:

    super cute!! I really enjoyed reading about this one! Good job IE :)

  225. broge says:

    brilliant. Way to find the perfect “prank.” Hilarious, yet harmful to absolutely noone.

  226. Pat Coffey says:

    This game will be remembered by both the players and parents as “The greatest Game Ever!” And I think that it was. These players will forever remember their televised game. God Bless the people that staged this.

  227. bicyclerepairguy says:

    You guys just made my heart about 3 times bigger! I can only imagine what it would have felt like to be a parent at that game, watching their kid’s reaction to the whole thing. I only hope my kid gets to experience something half that cool. Asking for autographs? Man, what a nice touch! I bet that game changed lives.

  228. Todd R says:

    You guys are amazing. You pull off these completely unexpected “stunts” and never cause harm… though some of your missions were ill-received.

  229. Thomas says:

    A freaking jumbotron, jim gray, and the goodyear blimp???? You guys have topped yourselves. Nothing else will ever come close.

  230. Chainsaw says:

    yah. cried.

  231. Juliet says:

    Whoever thought of this idea is brilliant- its my favorite one by far.

  232. Mark says:

    Truely great! Put lots of smiles on players, fans, and parents alike. This one is worth doing again at another place.

  233. Austin Donley says:

    I played as an 11 year old in Hermosa Beach Little League last year. I was on the Scrappers and my friend was on the Express. The other two teams in the Mudcats and Lugnuts division. I ask some of the kids on both teams if they head fun and they said it was the best time of their lives. Please come back to Hermosa Beach Little League and do it for the Scrappers.

  234. Derek Hale says:

    This has to be one of the greatest things I have seen. You got to be so ridiculously over the top while giving those kids a story to tell for the rest of their lives. Absolutely amazing no matter how you look at it. Thanks for a great great read yet again.

  235. 7son75 says:

    That has to be the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen. You’ve changed those kids forever by giving them a story that they’ll tell for the rest of their lives. Bravo.

  236. Dave says:

    Wow, congrats on getting enough interest from NBC to make a pilot. I am glad they didn’t pick it up as they would ruin your edgyness. They no doubt would have had the show hosted by Dick Clark and Ed McMahon. I can’t imagine your work being ruined by those two reading lame recycled jokes from TVs Bloopers and Practical Jokes before introducing each bit. That’s not what you are about. Keep up the good work. If I were a kid on that field, I would have remembered that day fondly for the rest of my life. Great job.

  237. HOTU says:

    What a wonderful, positive, heartwarming thing for IE to do. My favorite aspect of your work is that you NEVER do something with a negative comedy intent. It’s easy to publicly embarrass someone, but you guys are a cut above anyone doing comedy these days. Thank you for shaking up people’s definition of “normal” and for not sinking to the vulgar ridiculing of others that abounds on shows like “Punk’d” and “…Japanese Game Show.”

  238. Dave C says:

    This is one of my favorite ones.

    Any chance that you’d put up the full game video? I’m sure you probably have tape from throughout the game. Seeing everything unfold fully would be pretty neat.

  239. gi says:

    wow – you guys are big time now. how’d you manage the goodyear blimp?! programs, peanuts – great attention to detail.

  240. SteppedUp says:

    Wow. Not only did you give the gift of the Best Game Ever to those two teams and their parents – but to every single other former Little Leaguer who might chance across this.

    Thank you – very, very much.

  241. Anon Ymous says:

    That was such a sweet thing to do for those kids- puttin’ ‘em in the big leagues ! I was actually moved to tears. Keep up the GREAT WORK and lets start up another chapter here in DC !!!!

  242. Julie says:

    Can I just tell you that I actually had TEARS in my eyes when I finished reading this! It was so funny and so TOUCHING that these kids got tofeel so ultra mega cool! I love that you guys do stunts that dont hurt people or make them feel dumb or angry (like punked and stuff). LOVE IT!

  243. Bee says:

    That was just AMAZING!!! One of your best, I think because the kids will grow up, knowing that NBC sports covered their little league baseball game. amazing!!! u really do improve everywhere

  244. Jana says:

    Sooooooo sweet!

  245. Em says:

    Thats just AWESOME!!

  246. Jellie says:

    Dude, I cried tears of joy upon seeing this, and I don’t even like baseball.

    You just did a hardcore “Yes, Virginia,” and those kids will remember this forever.

  247. ClassTax says:

    Charlie Todd and the Improve Everywhere cast of Agents is one of the greatest groups of Artists of our Era.

    Thank You!!

  248. Julian Nam says:

    While missions like the MP3 experiments or the Best Buy mission are very cool, missions like this where you touch other peoples lives are just awesome. SO AWESOME! Please do more missions like this.

  249. tom tom says:

    I was looking for some feel good internet, and this was just what I was looking for. I really enjoyed it.

  250. Jamol says:

    I really wish there were more people like you Charlie Todd (and the rest of your agents), I am going to make it a point to telling all my friends family and co workers to check out your site, your not only brilliantly funny, dedicated, but also a huge heart, please keep them coming

  251. Marisa says:

    The comments never end, but I feel the same way, and I’m glad to know I wasn’t the only one crying and laughing at the same time while watching this. This is still my favorite mission ever, rivaled only by Spontaneous Musical (why can’t that happen to me? And yes, I do sing the Lemonade song randomly and if I could would get a decent mp3 of the actors singing it). It’s just…perfect. Absolutely beautiful. I wish the video was longer so we could see more about what that day was like.

  252. Tony says:

    This frigging almost brought me to tears. ;D

  253. Ziggy says:

    where does improv everywhere get the money to do something like this? it’s random improv that totally for fun and non profit.

  254. Fellow Prankster says:

    In a sea of gems, this shines the brightest. Simply…Bravo.

  255. Rex says:

    one of my all-time favorite videos. how lucky were these kids???

  256. tim d says:

    that is the best thing everywhere, i hope the earth finally gets set to a high moral standard, and will not be mean to people anymore. i really hope this gets peoples attention to make them think- tim

  257. Jessica says:

    The best mission ever. :) Well done.

  258. Troy says:

    That is amazing, I can’t believe that you guys can pull all of these things off without cracking up. I know i couldn’t keep a straight face while doing something like that. I bet those kids playing had to be so confused

  259. Sangko says:

    I must admit that this really made me smile (a hard thing to do considering I just got up and haven’t had coffee yet). More projects like this would be awesome :)

  260. Robert says:

    That’s a one of a kind.

  261. Ryan says:

    Wondering how the Lugnuts showed up in California…. I grew up in Lansing, MI. Home of the Semi-pro team, The Lansing Lugnuts. They used to draw a bigger crowd than some pro-teams. http://www.lansinglugnuts.com/

  262. Алекс says:

    Охренительно!!! 5++++++++++++

  263. To Mr. Ryan... says:

    Ryan, it isn’t the lugnuts from Lansing, it’s the little legue lugnuts from wherever they are in california. little Legue, not minor luege.

  264. Donald Dixon says:

    Now this is how the world should be. Fun and magical.
    Those kids will always remember that day…parents too.
    As for the rest of us watching this… If a little tear didn’t bubble up with joy then something is wrong with you.

  265. trevor says:

    My Gawd, that was amazing all that you did for them.
    You had NBC and Goodyear Blimp there!
    That’s just the greatest thing I have ever seen!
    You made me laugh and cry just watching/reading about it.
    The kids must feels so great, the parents too.
    Love what IE does.

  266. Noah says:

    Well.I just have nothing to say. That is so crazy.I like it so much.You know,it will be a magical experience for the kids,isn’t it?

  267. dustin says:

    I didn’t read through the rest of the posts, but kudos to the IE team, and particularly NBC for their contributions!

  268. Mike says:

    You guys are CLASSIC!!!!!!!!!

  269. leggy says:

    this is amazing and it made me really happy to see something like this random act of kindness. i love this!

  270. Roberto says:

    Wow, this is great, talk about doing a wonderful thing for kids.

    Simply amazing.

  271. vivi says:

    that was really cool what you guys did. i’m really into imorov too! if you guys ever come to Lenox, Iowa let me know! i would love to do things like that with you! Everything you guys do is hilarious and outstanding!

    thanks,

    vivi :)

  272. aa says:

    This is fantastic! I have been a passenger in the Goodyear Blimp. It was great to see Goodyear participate. You made these kids feel soooo good! I hope to be a participant myself one of these days.

    This is the best one ever. I have happy tears in my eyes thinking how the kids and parents of those kids felt that day.

    Out of everything you guys (& girls) have done, this is by far my most favorite mission. As a parent of a Little Leaguer myself I know without a doubt the kids must have got a huge kick out of this. It would have been great if you could have taped the game, complete with commentary, burned DVDs and presented one each to the kids as commemorative souvenirs of their “best game ever”. Maybe some of them will go on to play in the Majors, maybe just one of them, or perhaps none of them, but guaranteed they will all remember this day for the rest of their lives.

    Not just Best Game Ever, but Best Mission Ever, period. You cannot top this…but don’t let that stop you trying ;)

    Still got a tear or two, 5 minutes later. Totally, totally awesome. The e-mail from the parent really got me. God bless all of you all at IE!

    you guys should have gotten Rob to do a cameo on this one..lol

    great job you guys!

  279. Rob S. says:

    This is so awesome. You just prove that funny doesn’t have to be mean spirited. I think the fact that you come up with the most smile-inducing “pranks” also says a lot about your character!

    Keep it up – and can I get a “circle line tour” my next trip to the city?

    That’s so unbelievable cute!

    Ahhh, I have to cry!!!

  281. Deirdre N says:

    That is so cool, those kids are going to remember this for the rest of their life. Kudos!

  282. Juan Carlos says:

    You are crazy… and I love it…

    This is absolutely amazing… you change the life of all this kids for ever.

  283. Grownz says:

    This is SO sweet. You gave very big smiles to the kids and their parents!
