King Philip IV Goes to the Met

Recently a 17th century portrait of Spanish King Philip IV by painter Diego Velázquez was restored and reinstated in New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art. To celebrate this Improv Everywhere agent Chadwick Elliott (who bares a resemblance to the King) proposed that King Philip should make an appearance at the Met and sign autographs for museum visitors. Here’s the video of the prank starring Elliott and IE founder Charlie Todd, for more information on how the prank went down go to the Improv Everywhere website.
