Improv Everywhere's latest publicity stunt brought time to a standstill. At New York's Grand Central Station, the guerrilla improvisation group had 200 actors freeze, in position, in the middle of the terminal, for five minutes.

The scene is captivating, especially since 500,000 people rush through the station every day. It's incredible to watch as the large group of actors stand frozen in time, completely ignoring the hustling and bustling crowds around them. Stats for Time Standing Still Trending: Older & Warm
