We teamed up with Bleacher Report to host a watch party to kick off the Women’s World Cup as the U.S. took on Thailand.

This public event drew in hundreds of fans from around the city who were able to enjoy food, drinks, games, music, and the game live on the Big Screen.

Light Up Someone’s Holiday

For their latest mission, Improv Everywhere created a custom-built set that allowed random New Yorkers to instantly deliver a card and light up someone’s holiday. Participants were surprised as Christmas lights lit up the plaza and their message was displayed on a 30-foot wide screen above.

This project is a collaboration with Hallmark, who provided an assortment of Hallmark Signature Cards for the project.

This mission took place at Big Screen Plaza, which really was custom built for an idea like this. As its name suggests, the plaza has an enormous screen. It was awesome watching the moment people realized their card was going up on the screen.

Blue Bunny prepares for Ice Cream Day with “Game of Cones”

National Ice Cream Day is on Sunday, July 16, which coincides with the return of one of the most hotly anticipated shows on TV. Blue Bunny ice cream jumped in on the celebration and offered fans a once-in-a-lifetime chance to sit on an ice-cream-cone constructed throne replica it calls “Game of Cones.”

The 7’ 2″ throne was constructed of ice cream cone wafers and made its debut at Big Screen Plaza in New York City today. Fans snagged selfies on the throne and prepared for National Ice Cream Day with a sweet frozen treat, courtesy of Blue Bunny.
