This is a montage of moments from actions by The Love Police. Things get really interesting at 1:07.
On February 21, 2009, an advertising firm handed Poster Boy a MoMA jacket and gave him free range of the MoMA branded Atlantic-Pacific subway station in New York. Turns out the firm wasn’t supposed to do that, and MoMA fired them. Whoops.

For our latest mission we had several hundred agents spend a day at Coney Island / Brighton Beach wearing black tie attire. We covered a mile-long stretch of beach with a diverse group of people of all ages (from babies to sixty-somethings) laying out, playing games, and swimming in the ocean, all in formal wear. Agents were instructed to find cheap tuxedos and ball gowns at thrift stores for the occasion.
This prank is seven years old, but not enough people know about it. It’s a classic.

Our friend Rob Cockerham over at Cockeyed has issued a challenge to pranksters around the world. He writes:
The economy is pitiful right now. Both where I live and where I work, I’m seeing a bunch of businesses closing their doors forever.
Shuttered buildings are incredibly depressing, so I’m launching a plan to help liven up our neighborhood streets and remind everyone that economic recovery is just around the corner.
It’s a contest. Create and print your own “Opening Soon” flier and tape it to the door of an empty retail, industrial or warehouse property. Email a picture and you are in the contest! Include a description of the location and hazards if you would like.

A counter-protest was held at the Westboro Baptist Church’s protest of San Diego Comic-Con. Above, protester Jon Sung wears a DS9-era Starfleet Command Uniform to protest the Jedi.
