Docurama: The Yes Men Fix the World
Thursday, March 4, 2010
Beware, Corporate America: the Yes Men are here!
The Yes Men Fix the World follows The Yes Men - Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno - as they take on Dow Chemical, Exxon Mobil, Halliburton and the U.S. government, posing as official spokesmen who make altruistic announcements that fly in the face of institutional interests.
Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno are two guys who just can't take "no" for an answer. They have an unusual hobby: posing as top executives of corporations they hate. Armed with nothing but thrift-store suits, the Yes Men lie their way into business conferences and parody their corporate targets in ever more extreme ways - basically doing everything that they can to wake up their audiences to the danger of letting greed run our world.
The Yes Men explain How To Pull Off An International Prank (VIDEO).
