Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno have an unusual hobby: posing as top executives of corporations they hate. Armed with nothing but thrift-store suits, the Yes Men lie their way into business conferences and parody their corporate targets in ever more extreme ways – basically doing everything that they can to wake up their audiences to the danger of letting greed run our world.SurvivaBalls™ save managers from abrupt climate change. An advanced new technology will keep corporate managers safe even when climate change makes life as we know it impossible. Andy, as a Dow Chemical spokesperson, gets on TV and announces that Dow will clean up the site of the Bhopal catastrophe. As people worldwide celebrate, Dow’s stock value loses two billion dollars. People want Dow to do the right thing, but the market decides that it can’t.
Mike and Andy with the SurvivaBall at a meeting. “Finally, protection for the corporate elite. From Halliburton, a name you trust.”
Be sure to catch Mike Bonanno of the Yes Men at the Syracuse Peace Council’s 75th Birthday Dinner Sat., Oct. 22.
