The Yes Men Fix the World


Dir. Andy Bichlbaum & Mike Bonanno (2009).
This sequel to the Yes Men’s first film continues with their greatest stunt—one going live on BBC World in the guise of a Dow Chemical spokesman to announce Dow would mark the 20th anniversary of the Bhopal chemical disaster with a $12 billion aid plan for the victims. (Stock dropped faster than the interviewer’s jaw.) Basically entertainers who strut and fret their hour on the media stage, these anti-globalist performance artists delight sympathetic audiences with the possibility of change.
