Seeing Eye People: Improv Everywhere Tackles The Texting While Walking Epidemic [VIDEO]

Sketch group Improv Everywhere released a new video of people posing as city workers, “providing a ridiculous solution to the ‘texting and walking’ epidemic in New York.”

Participants dressed in custom orange New York City Department of Transportation vests inscribed with: “I can help you walk and text.” They also carried leashes that plainclothes' participants held onto while texting and walking. For the project, Improv Everywhere collaborated with BuzzFeed  and also offered the service to actual people in NYC. Watch their reactions here.
