Improv Everywhere has released video of their latest stunt. This time they harnessed the "special skill" of one IE fan. That skill is looking exactly like a Renaissance painting of King Philip IV of Spain. So, naturally they dressed him up like the painted king and held an autograph signing.


Ringmaster Charlie Todd posed as the king's promoter, explaining to the bewildered crowd, "King Philip IV... is famous for being in this Velasquez painting right here... So he wanted to stand in front of it."

After you watch the video, head over to the IE post for photos and behind the scenes details.
