Improv Everywhere Hosts a Surprise Olympics Torch Run

  • What would you do if you were just walking down the street, minding your business, when someone handed you an Olympic torch (even though the Olympics aren’t in your country this year)? Improv Everywhere brought this question to life by having someone pose as an injured torch runner who needed help to get the torch to her partner. Whoever obliged was then greeted by a cheering crowd and reporters.

    I think it’d be pretty cool to be treated like an American hero, even if I found out it was all fake 10 minutes later. Would you believe this rouse, and how would you react? Watch the video and let us know below!
