Pretend to Be a Time Traveler Day – Dec. 8th

September 17, 2007

The likelihood that I’ll participate isn’t great, but it has an Improv Everywhere mission written all over it.

You must spend the entire day in costume and character. The only rule is that you cannot actually tell anyone that you are a time traveler.

I’ve set the tentative date for December 8th.

There are three possible options:
1) Utopian/cliché Future
“If the Future did a documentary of the last fifty years, this is how badly the reenactors would dress.”
2) Dystopian Future
Remember, dystopian future travelers are very startled that they’ve gone back in time.

– Walk up to random people and say “WHAT YEAR IS THIS?” and when they tell you, get quiet and then say “Then there’s still time!” and run off.

– Stand in front of a statue (any statue, really), fall to your knees, and yell “NOOOOOOOOO”
2) The Past
Basically dress in period clothing (preferably Victorian era) and stagger around amazed at everything. Since the culture’s set in place already, you have more of a template to work off of.

– Airplanes are terrifying. Also, carry on conversations with televisions for a while.
