Chris turned me on to this, very cool stuff. The Grand Central one is phenomenal (top link) - 207 people 'freeze' at the exact same second and stay totally still for 5 minutes. Then within a few seconds of each other, after 5 minutes is up, they all reanimate and go back to their daily business:

This was great. When one person said they thought it was a protest, it reminded me of when I was just in New York. The street fair was set up in Times Square and when it was all done and the cops were trying to reopen the streets, there were hundreds of people blowing bubbles. We asked the cops what was going on and the said they had no idea. We also wondered if it wasn't some kind of protest, maybe it was just crazy New Yorkers. (We were like the people in the video and took pictures :)

And the opposite end of the "doing for the sake of doing" spectrum:

In the same vein, how about some fun with twins in the NYC subway?
