The reactions of those poor unsuspecting diners around them are priceless! New York-based Improv Everywhere struck in a REAL BIG WAY late last year with this stunt where they discreetly planted 20 women in conversation with their male cohorts in the same Manhattan deli that the original scene was filmed in and let, erm, Mother Nature gradually take its course. Of course!

It was a mass re-enactment of the classic scene from When Harry Met Sally, only amplified and without, unfortunately, a young Meg Ryan. As Improv Everywhere say: ‘For our latest mission we recreated the famous fake orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally with actors dressed as Harry and Sally and 20 additional couples in Katz’s Deli. When Sally’s fake orgasm began, 20 additional women (on dates with 20 men) joined in one by one, creating an over-the-top surprise for the Katz’s employees and patrons. This was staged without the knowledge of the restaurant, though thankfully they all seemed to love it’.

Genius.
