The Yes Men are at it again!

6-howtofix-yesmen1-2The ‘Peter Pans’ of politics, these two men meddle with corporations to raise awareness about corporate injustice, especially in relation to global warming.

Yesterday, a news source ran an article about the alleged hoax involving the Chamber of Commerce and the Yes Men. This wiley pair seems to have leaked a press release announcing that The Chamber of Commerce has changed its mind and decided to address the global warming crisis, when in fact this is far from the truth. Right from the get go, evidence pointed towards our favorite rebels, the Yes Men, and they finally did admit to the hoax. The details are scarce, but you can read about it here. Better yet, you can check out the video below – or, even better, you can ask them about in person it at the First Person Festival, when they appear live on November 5!

Here’s the video of the event, poking fun at the government’s response to global warming. It’s nothing short of hilarious. (The audio starts out a little low, so you may have to turn up your speakers):
