The Yes Men Fix The World

The Yes Men have a history of critical subversion.

“Mike” and “Andy” both solo and together have made me laugh out loud. The Barbie Liberation Organization, the SimCopter hack, RTMark, and of course the history of “Identity Correction”; Impersonating big-time criminals in order to publicly humiliate them. Targets are leaders and big corporations who put profits ahead of everything else. 

This 2009 film documents some of their operations in the last few years. Like as seen here in Calgary in 2007, when they appeared as representatives of the (U.S.) National Petroleum Council and ExxonMobil at the GO-Expo (a massive petroleum industry event). Much hilarity ensued.

I’m not a fan of the giant inflated outfits, but the impersonations they pull off are incredible.
