A spa springs up at a crowded subway platform in New York City

Improv Everywhere is a New York City-based prank collective that creates scenes of fun and joy in public places (or chaos, depending on your mood on that particular day). Created in 2001 by Charlie Todd, Improv Everywhere has executed over 100 missions involving tens of thousands of participants.

For their latest mission, they have turned an extremely warm, non-air-conditioned New York City subway platform into an unauthorized luxury spa. Judging from the reactions of the New Yorkers who came across them, it seems turning up the heat helped let their guard down and bring out the smiles on a hot summer’s day.
