Slo-Mo Home Depot (An Example)

Improv Everywhere Mission: Slo-Mo Home Depot

Anybody up for a "slo-mo d.c."? BTW, the 'action' part of this project will be 'flash-mob' based. Hence, it would behoove members to familiarize themselves with the process.
"A few years back we executed a mission that involved repeating time. Ever since then I've wanted to try something that stopped or slowed down time. How would people react if they found themselves surrounded by people moving forward at a different rate or time (or not moving at all)? I decided the Home Depot on 23rd Street in Manhattan was the perfect place to try this out for two reasons. 1) The assonance in 'Slo-Mo Home Depot' sounds funny. 2) The mere existence of a Home Depot, an enormous behemoth of a store, on our tiny island is hilarious. It also helped that the store is located on the exact same block as the Best Buy we invaded earlier this year."
