Improv Everywhere Starts 'Carousel Horse Race' In Bryant Park (VIDEO)

Improv Everywhere's latest mission took place at New York's Bryant Park carousel and we have to say, it was adorable.

The premise was simple: send a jockey to ride one of the carousel horses and then have a crowd descend upon the surrounding area to make it look like a big horse race. It's great to watch how into it the kids get even though they have no prior knowledge of what's going on. And the bystanders really get a kick out of it too. There's nothing like watching other people's spontaneous joy to evoke your own spontaneous joy.

Check out photos and an in-depth explanation over at Improv Everywhere's blog, and watch the full video of the race below.
