The Yes Men: Changing the World One Prank at a Time (2003)
Part 1   Part 2                                
4.7 · 7

The Yes Men follows a couple of anti-corporate activist-pranksters as they impersonate World Trade Organization spokesmen on TV and at business conferences around the world.

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 real change happens when we make policy change. Sometimes that means talking to lawmakers, sometimes it means becoming a lawmaker, and sometimes it means raising hell so that lawmakers tremble. The Yes Men.

Part 2 is an English version with Spanish subtitles.
