Rocket Rock Out

Urban pranksters Improv in Toronto were out in force this past Saturday, once again bringing their whimsical brand of public tomfoolery to the city’s subway system—this time with pants securely on. After meeting up above ground in Queen’s Park, the group piled on to a train on the Yonge-University line and—seemingly spontaneously—started to dance to whatever music was pumping through their headphones. According to organizers, Saturday’s groove-fest was “at least 20 times bigger” than last year’s sparsely attended inaugural edition, drawing around 450 participants.
How did commuters not in on the joke react when their subway car turned into a chaste, sober, and fast-moving dance club? The above video pretty much says it all.
