The Yes Men

This gleeful little documentary chronicles the adventures of the Yes Men, a duo of straight-faced corporate pranksters. Aiming to lob criticism at the World Trade Organization, our performance artists/activists set up a fake WTO parody site on the Internet. Oddly enough, the website is so realistic that many people mistake it for the real thing and start inviting the Yes Men to assorted international trade conferences. Naturally, our boys strap on fake Rolexes and thrift store suits and hit the road. Their ridiculous, brilliant pranks (from extolling the virtues of "evolutionary slavery" to recycling human waste into third world food sources) hint at the dangers of globalism and point up the complete cluelessness of the people they're making fun of. From the makers of American Movie. 83 minutes
