The Yes Men Interview

The Yes Men Lab logoAndy Bichlbaum, leading member of the Yes Men, interviewed by Joe Garofoli, reporter, San Francisco Chronicle moderator, for The Commonwealth Club. [64m 13s]

Bichlbaum and his partner, Mike Bonanno, pose as top-notch representatives for large corporations and nations, yes, nations. At the Copenhagen Climate Conference last December, the Yes Men delivered a faux press release claiming Canada was reversing its position on climate change. And how can one forget the jaw-dropping statements made by spokesperson for Dow Chemical accepting full responsibility for the Bhopal disaster on worldwide news station BBC? Needless to say, they have a knack for striking chords of condemnation and admiration, stimulating polar perspectives simultaneously. Their latest documentary, The Yes Men Fix the World, has been hailed as a riotous reminder that patriotism is often misconstrued as troublemaking. Get a load of the Yes Men.

Maybe time for a BP prank? :mrgreen:
