Art work facts:

On a cold Saturday in New York City, the world’s largest train station came to a sudden halt. Over 200 Improv Everywhere Agents froze in place at the exact same second for five minutes in the Main Concourse of Grand Central Station. Over 500,000 people rush through Grand Central every day, but today, things slowed down just a bit as commuters and tourists alike stopped to notice what was happening around them.

Personal response:

CT: Do you know what that was?
Cop: I have no idea! That is the craziest shit I’ve ever seen in my life, AND I’M A COP!
CT: Ha. Yeah, it was weird.
Cop: You wanna sign up to be in the NYPD?
CT: No thanks.

Watching the Video you see Charlie Todd not frozen, he appears to become the catalyst for the engagement. He touches someone, allowing other members of the public to engage with the agents.
