Improv Everywhere Brings MP3 Experiment To Roosevelt Island On Saturday May 23

The wacky folks at Improv Everywhere are bringing their zaniness to Roosevelt Island on Saturday with the MP3 Experiment 6. If you don't know about Improv Everywhere, they are responsible for such high cultural events as No Pants Subway Ride and Frozen Grand Central, among many others, and describe themselves this way:
Improv Everywhere causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. Created in August of 2001 by Charlie Todd, Improv Everywhere has executed over 80 missions involving thousands of undercover agents. The group is based in New York City.
Participants for the Roosevelt Island extravaganza are asked to download a MP3 File to their Ipod or other player, wear a red, blue, yellow or green T-shirt with a white T-shirt underneath and then at 4PM play the downloaded track and follow the instructions.

Full instructions are here.

Be advised that there will be no Manhattan Bound F trains operating from Roosevelt Island this weekend so expect very crowded Trams when leaving Roosevelt Island particularly after the MP3 Experiment..
