The Yes Men (Mike Bonano and Andy Bichelbaum) are two academics who “impersonate big-time criminals in order to publicly humiliate them. Targets are leaders and big corporations who put profits ahead of everything else” (theyesmen.org).
They recently came out with a documentary, “The Yes Men Fix the World”, which opened in NYC a few months ago to rave reviews. They’ve been around for a number of years, but have recently garnered a good deal of attention due in part to high profile events around the globe and the recent film debut. To get a sense of the kind of work they do, visit the website for the film (above).
