One of the best features of this “Yes Men Coalition” is that anyone can become a member. A few months ago I signed up to become part of the team and a couple weeks later, I learned that they were about to strike again. The Yes Men along with several other groups and organizations including the Anti-Advertising Agency, CODEPINK, United for Peace and Justice, Not An Alternative, May First/People Link, Improv Everywhere, Evil Twin, and Cultures of Resistance, all got together 6 months ago and began working on the elaborate newspaper hoax that occurred this morning.
It seems the newspaper prank has already received mixed reactions but in the end, the purpose of the prank all comes down to this. On November 4th we all made history by electing Barack Obama as our 44th President, and it cannot end here. It is up to us to make sure that those headlines come true.
