the yes men

It’s here — the new trailer to the upcoming documentary on the world’s most successful and elaborate corporate pranksters. Just a few weeks ago, we talked about how the Yes Men — a duo committed to exposing corporate evil — had created a new bottled water brand named B’eau-Pal. It was a play on words to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the disaster at Bhopal — something Dow Chemical still refuses to address and clean-up; despite studies showing adverse health effects on people still living near the site.

Now, the group is ready to release their new movie documenting some of their latest corporate pranks titled, The Yes Men Fix The World. Needless to say, it’s an impressive glimpse at what’s sure to be a hit documentary — and hopefully a wake-up call to the corporations targeted. Check it out below:

    Wow it’s on HBO Rachelle? God I hope they air it again. THANK you for this link. So sad it doesn’t have millions of hits on that youtube trailer (hardly any) I guess they’re all too busy watching senseless stupid “entertainment” instead.

    THANK you ER for this link!

    Erin…if you have HBO or HBO On Demand…look for it in the listings…I actually caught it by mistake…browsing for something to watch besides reruns…and there it was. These guys are brilliant…and even those who were on the positive end of the hoaxes (Katrina victims, Bhopal victims) weren’t angry with The Yes Men once the hoaxes were revealed…They viewed the experience on a grander scale: getting the message out about how they were screwed over and still being screwed many years later.
