In the name of art, over 2,000 people of all ages and races recently participated in Improv Everywhere’s latest mission by spending their Sunday afternoon walking "invisible dogs" down the streets of Brooklyn.

The leashes used in this retro toy revival project were loaned from the current owner of the factory where the invisible dog toy was invented in the 1970s.

There are plenty more hilarious photos on Improv Everywhere’s blog showcasing the array of reactions the invisible dogs received from the general public.

It is clear from the photos that one dog kennel in particular was not very impressed by the project, and not at all accommodating, yet cafe’s were very welcoming of the invisible dogs, with one even providing an invisible water dish out front for them.
