The yes men are revolting official trailer 1 2015 documentary hd


This documentary showcases the beginnings of the "Yes Men," a parody group started by Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum, who initially set up a fake World Trade Organization website to spoof the hypocrisy of the group. Gradually, conferences and news media started to contact the two men thinking they were the actual WTO. Mike and Andy began impersonating members of the WTO at these events, using exaggerated and callous statements to satirize the actions of the organization.

The film revolves around "The Yes Men"—two anti-globalization activists, under the aliases Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno—who impersonate spokespeople for the WTO and affiliated corporations, in order to secretly lampoon and satirize these organizations with elaborate ruses and fraudulent announcements of ridiculous corporate decisions, in front of live, unsuspecting audiences (usually comprising businesspeople, university student bodies, and/or the press). The film details the two activists involvement in hoaxes targeting SimCopter, the 2000 G. W. Bush presidential campaign, McDonalds, and, most prominently, the WTO.
