Best Buy Fearful of People Dressed Like Its Employees
Improv Everywhere, a New York City group that likes to have "organized fun" recently gathered together eighty people, all dressed like Best Buy employees and entered, at 15 second intervals, the Best Buy on 23rd Street. The purpose of the "mission" and all of the group's missions was simply to create an event that would make for good story telling. As you read the mission here, you'll begin to realize different reactions people had and how a group of harmless people dressed alike can raise unwarranted alarm. What does this have to do with advertising? Not much but it is interesting to see how a big brand can can be so fearful of a bunch of people who happen to be dressed like the brand's employees.
