An Improv group in New York City pretended to be “seeing eye people” for texting while walking.

According to Improv Everywhere’s website, they “posed as city workers providing a ridiculous solution to the ‘texting and walking’ epidemic in New York. Our team of 60 participants divided into two groups: Half were ‘Seeing Eye People’ wearing orange vests, and half were individuals texting and walking, connected to the Seeing Eye People via leashes. The Seeing Eye People claimed to be part of a Department of Transportation pilot program.”

The video has gone viral on YouTube. Click here for the video.
