Hilarious! I like the human dominoes one a lot.
The Singapore one was great too. Very creative.
We (BostonSOS) had 7 cameras for the dominoes prank so we caught a few really good reactions in addition to getting the fall from multiple angles. Eventually before the next millennium (hopefully) we’ll get all the footage together in one short clip on our website. There’s a very short clip of it from another angle here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pxu_uYksuMw
29 agents did a freeze at the Thriftway grocery store in Afton, Wyoming
I love the human dominoes!
The idea for the painting one sounded weak, but the execution (and crowd) made it really funny. I wonder how many of the onlookers were agents, though. I think it may have been better to have him using actual white paint on a white canvas — people would think he really was painting (because he was), and then when they saw the canvas, it would create some, “oh…I guess I just don’t ‘get’ art” moments.
