The Yes Men Democracy Now Interview


I was just turned on to “The Yes Men”, two gentlemen that make a habit of impersonating corporate executives in interviews and conferences, only to subtly ridicule their practices and bring attention to corporate scandal. This interview by Amy Goodman highlights them “representing” Halliburton at a LexisNexis conference and after taking some jabs at the insurance industry, they introduce the “survivaball”, a hilarious protective suit for executives in disasters. There are other interviews on YouTube including them impersonating a Dow Chemical representative finally admitting responsibility for the Bhopal chemical disaster on BBC news! They are quickly becoming one of my favorite guerrilla media protesters.
