Yes, They Did

September 23, 2009

This week, the political pranksters known as The Yes Men perpetrated their latest elaborate joke in New York City. Almost a million newspaper readers were handed The Yes Men’s satirical version of the New York Post, featuring the banner headline “We’re Screwed!”; the rest of the paper included additional absurdist twists on the stories of the day, all rendered in the Post’s signature visual and journalistic style.

MFA Design Department Co-chair Steven Heller appeared on the September 23 edition of WNYC radio’s morning show The Takeaway to talk about the efficacy of this and other political pranks in changing conversations and point of view. Visit The Takeaway‘s show page to listen to the segment online and view a collection of Web videos by The Yes Men.
