It's a typical day in New York. Leia Organa's doing some light reading on the subway, when suddenly a cadre of Imperial trooper enters. One stop later, a Sith Lord is using public transportation. Yes, Improv Everywhere has struck again.

Improv Everywhere, the coterie of pranksters behind the Ghostbusters library stunt, has posted a new stunt in which they act out the opening minutes of A New Hope on mass transit. The result? The happiest bunch of people I've seen riding the MTA in ages.
