Five years ago, the Yes Men impersonated Dow Chemical live on BBC World Television and announced that after 20 years, the company was finally going to clean up its mess in Bhopal. That hoax, … temporarily knocked two billion dollars off Dow’s share price …”

Here’s their latest prank against Dow Chemical … bottling the toxic water from Bhopal and bringing it to Dow Chemical.

The unique qualities of our water come from 25 years of slow-leaching toxins at the site of the world’s largest industrial accident.

See that prank, and more in the Yes Men’s new movie, The Yes Men Fix The World, which opens in UK cinemas on August 11. It comes to the USA sometime later.

Link for prank lovers. Link for do gooders.

FYI: @absurddelight rules!
