Famed internet pranksters Improv Everywhere just posted their latest “mission”, a musical about the joys of lunch sung inside the atrium of Trump Tower. But this time, they got to record it using a boatload of NBC’s high-tech gear.
Because the Today Show (US morning news program) was doing a piece on pranks and wanted Ann Curry to be involved, they got involved and pulled out all the stops. They set up a huge tech control room in a storage area, with seven guys working seven joysticks connected to seven robotic HD cameras. The cameras were hidden throughout the atrium behind tinted glass and in plants.
It’s gotta be hard to go back to using cameras hidden in duffel bags after this.
