What Happens When a Rowboat of Pirates Sails in Central Park Lake in NYC? [VIDEO]
What would you do if you ran into a few pirates? What if the run-in was in New York City? NYC-based prank collective Improv Everywhere dressed as pirates and took to the waters of Central Park Lake, using a rowboat fully equipped with a helm and pirate flags.
The prank was a play on Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean, as the team traversed the lake in search of the Bethesda Fountain, where the keys to their treasure chest would be found. Like in the Disney movie, once the pirates of Central Park find the fountain, a scruffy dog walks up holding the key but refuses to give it to the foolish pirates.
