I know I'm late to this party, but I want to live in this world.
If you aren't already familiar with the "urban improv troupe" Improv Everywhere, well, why would you be? Nobody read Deadspin back in 2006 except Unsilent Majority and Will Leitch's dad. And they just skimmed the Gawker site looking for pics of Agent Zero and Juan Encarnacion. True story. But I digress.
Similar to Improv Everywhere's old prank at Yankee Stadium, Agent Lathan (a.k.a. "Rob") recently pretended to get lost during a New York Knicks game. Throughout the second half "Rob" kept appearing further and further away from his assigned seat with a confused look on his face.
Naturally, Knicks fans went crazy trying to help him find his way back.
As NBA Off-Season so eloquently put it: "Leave it to improv theatre actors to get Knicks fans off their seats and chanting, if not even for their own team." Touché, my friends. Touché.
