In their latest guerrilla comedy scheme, Improv Everywhere gave everyone at Bryant Park's ice skating rink in NYC a big surprise when they debuted the "worst ice skater ever." The seemingly novice skater was actually professional Kenny Moir, who stayed on the ice despite it being cleared for a Zamboni-ing, and became increasingly better at skating throughout the 3-minute run. What starts as a fumbling fool confusing the onlookers becomes a triumphant professional ice skating show for all to see.

The stunt was put on in conjunction with the Ice Theatre of New York and as you'll see in the video, brought Improv Everywhere's signature mix of confusion, chaos and delight to all involved.
