This Sketch Video Seemed Absurd Until People Did the Same Thing in Real Life


Here’s a sketch that NYC comedy group The Bilderbergers made for Lorne Michaels’s company’s YouTube channel, Above Average, about a pair of Brooklyn designers who start making artsy beautiful signs to help the homeless instead of giving them food or shelter. After shooting the video, the group found that this is a real thing that is happening in Massachusetts, where two artists are giving homeless people beautiful, colorful signs to replace their handwritten ones. “We were pretty astonished at how what had always been a satirical idea in our heads was actually implemented,” says Bilderbergers member Ben Stadler. Congrats to those living, breathing sketch comedy characters in Massachusetts!
