The Yes Men

This is a great documentary about some bizarre characters. They're anti-globalization protesters who - apparently kind of by accident - started impersonating WTO officials to stage prank style protests. They basically pretended to be WTO guys and turned up at conferences (and similar) to spout crazy, over-the-top fake WTO positions and plans.

The pranks themselves are hilarious. The points they are making about globalization aren't really too deep, but they are worth thinking about anyway.

It's worth watching just for the gold management leisure suit that they unveil in front of an unsuspecting conference audience in Finland. Well, it's worth watching anyhow, to be honest.

They have a website, too.
