Port-a-Potty Prank Surprises Festivalgoers

It seemed to be a normal day at the Governors Ball music festival in New York. It turned out to be anything but normal.

Members of the New York City-based Improv Everywhere group, known for unusual missions such as the "No Pants Subway Ride," set up their latest stunt in a place where they knew they'd shock people. Hence the "Magical Port-A-Potty" mission.

Well, mission accomplished. Concertgoers were definitely surprised by the multimember bands and singing groups exiting from what appeared to be one port-a-potty.

How did all those people fit in one port-a-potty? Well, they didn't.

Festival workers cut out the back of one port-a-potty, put it in the middle of the others and made a break in the back fencing, allowing for the performing individuals to enter through one at a time.

Improv Everywhere uses what it calls undercover agents, or citizen volunteers, to pull off these stunts. The group has carried out more than 100 missions.
