Operation: Best Buy

Every wonder what would happen if 80 people showed up at your local Best Buy dressed exactly like the employees with directions to "be as helpful as possible"? Well, wonder no further... a group of very creative and very brave people in NYC called Improv Everywhere decided we needed to know. Armed with hidden cameras (they even brought in memory cards and video tape so they could use the in-store demo cameras as well -- too funny) and a blue polo shirts, they infiltrated the big 2-story Best Buy in Manhattan.

See the whole documented account here - a great read.
