Anyone else a fan of pranksters The Yes Men, who you may have seen in films The Yes Men and (out now) The Yes Men Fix The World? Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno are activists who carry out Punk’d style stunts to embarrass politicians and corporations. My favorite past stunt was the phallic WTO management leisure suit.
They have a new video channel at Babelgum, which will be the place to catch up on future pranks. In the video below, you can check them out introducing “Survivaballs” and sending them to the United Nations.

Smart? Funny? Both? Or a Halloween costume idea?
