Best advertisement ever

This is an advertisement for T-Mobile filmed at 11am on Thursday, January 15th 2009 at Liverpool Street station, London. Nothing political, just awesome:

Now that's the way to make an advertisement.

Didn't they do the same thing in The Fisher King?

That's my tube stop. I guess I shouldn't have walked that day.

Very cool, but the whole idea was lifted from Improv Everywhere. Some examples:

My first instinct is to say that making a commercial out of something as awesome and community-based as Improv Everywhere cheapens it, but that's not true. I wouldn't mind advertising nearly as much if it made my day more interesting instead of just being obnoxious.
