Improv Everywhere, the comedy troupe known for their flash mob-like stunts, has taken to the subways numerous times. Their annual No Pants Subway Ride has become the pants-less event of the winter, and they’ve also hosted art gallery openings in a subway station and froze Grand Central.
Over the winter, they staged the first meeting between Princess Leia and Darth Vader on a 6 train. The video, released this week and embedded above, shows how straphangers reacted with glee to the prank, and those heading uptown snapped photos of the Dark Lord. The guy sitting next to Leia in the train car is clearly lovin’ it.
