Iconoclastic Irritants?

ots31Yes, this is how Michael Elkin described the Yes Men, as inconoclastic irritants. But hey, famous ones at that! The Yes Men have had yet another article published about them – I’m beginning to lose count. Clearly their tricky schemes to make the public reevaluate corporations is getting the press it deserves.

“We are the world — and what a greedy, grifting, money-grubbing cesspool we are, say the duo. Who would disagree with such Yes Men? Hard to tell when you’re laughing so hard,” said Micheal Elkin, author of article Yes They Can. Make sure to read this excellent article, its got some juicy details on the Yes Men and their stunning pranks. Moral of the story? Pranks aren’t just for kids.

Come see the Yes Men in the flesh and find out with the hype is all about. They’ll be in Philadelphia for our First Person Annual Festival Thursday, November 5th from 8:30 to 10:30. Who can say no to the yes men?
