This past Saturday “frozen in time” missions happened in both London and Toronto. They were inspired by our Frozen Grand Central mission and organized via Improv Everywhere Global. The idea seems to be spreading like wildfire, as other groups in other towns are organizing similar events as well on IE Global.
The London event took place in Trafalgar Square and had an estimated 1,000 participants.

The Toronto event took place at one of Canada’s busiest shopping malls and was covered by CBC news.
There was also another London event last week in Waterloo Station:
Get involved in your area at Improv Everywhere Global.
Stockholm also had a freeze this Saturday, with 200 – 300 participants freezing at the Stockholm Central Station!
William– awesome! If there is video of the Stockholm freeze, post it here.
The Netherlands will freeze Wednesday the 27th of February in the largest Dutch train station: Utrecht Central Station. More info: http://improveverywhere.ning.com/group/thenetherlands/
My girlfriend capture some great video of the Toronto event: http://youtube.com/watch?v=M98yY5uUewg
Stockholm had a freeze and I missed it >_<. William, where do you sign up if you wanna join in the future events?
Ledde: On facebook, search for the group Stockholm flash mob.
Note that there are two groups, Stockholm flashmob – they did the “bang bang” in Gallerian this summer, and we have Stockholm flash mob – the new and more active group, where we did the Centralstation freeze…
wow, this is so cool. One of these movement things. It is popping out everywhere. love it.
Stuff like this shows me, that there is a chance to really change society. We are living in a time, where you have the ability to “move” global.
Not sure the details but if NBC was the one that said no they must be pooping their pants now at the attention this is receiving!
Congratulations Charlie! This is amazing.
London was great.. they are trying to organize one here at the Capitol Building, but using it to protest immigration laws.. It’s not right to mix art and politics, IE should remain for entertaining purposes IMHO
This looks like an AMAZING Idea! Anyone in the 805 area? Santa Barbara would be great!
ROME freezed yesterday as well !!

Beautiful! It wasn’t as great as the New York City Freeze in Grand Central Station, but good stuff nonetheless :). Keep it up!
