THE YES MEN

With The Yes Men!

The story follows Andy and Mike from their beginnings with GWBush.com, and on to their tasteless parody of the WTO’s website. Some visitors don’t notice the site is a fake, and send speaking invitations meant for the real WTO. Mike and Andy play along with the ruse and soon find themselves attending important functions as WTO representatives.

Delighted to speak for the organization they oppose, Andy and Mike don thrift-store suits and set out to shock their unwitting audiences with darkly comic satires on global free trade. Weirdly, the experts don’t notice the joke and seem to agree with every terrible idea the two can come up with.

Exhausted by their failed attempts to shock, Mike and Andy take a whole new approach for one final lecture.

The Yes Men is directed by Dan Olman, Sarah Price, and Chris Smith. Their aim is: “Impersonating big-time criminals in order to publicly humiliate them. Targets are leaders and big corporations who put profits ahead of everything else.”

“The Yes Men are astonishing, anarchic sights to behold.” – Entertainment Weekly
