Matrix in Macy's

Me… me… me… Watch out for that sneaky Agent Smith! In the latest "Movies in Real Life" video, Improv Everywhere sends Neo to the Macy's in New York City to shop for a "man dress". There he encounters a bevy of Agent Smiths and gets into a slow-mo fight with all of them before taking off… to the second floor. This fun stunt is referencing, obviously enough, the Burly Brawl fight scene from The Matrix Reloaded (2003) and it's amusing to watch them make fun of and recreate the scene in the middle of a department store. This isn't my favorite "Movies in Real Life" creation so far, but it's the perfect distraction to incite some laughter.

Here's the fourth episode of "Movies in Real Life" inspired by the Burly Brawl fight in Matrix Reloaded:

From Improv Everywhere: "For our latest mission we sent Neo from the Matrix into Macy's in New York City to shop for a new 'man dress.' As Neo talked to a confused sales associate in the mens suits department, over 30 'Agent Smith' clones suddenly appeared, pouring out of elevators and escalators surrounding the area. An entirely unauthorized slow motion battle ensued, similar to the famous fight scene in The Matrix Reloaded. It’s the Matrix sequel you've always wanted: Macy's Reloaded." This is the latest in Improv Everywhere's new series Movies in Real Life. "Every Tuesday, we’re releasing a new video that brings an iconic movie moment to life in the real world." Last week they did LOTR. Follow for their latest videos here.

The scene this is making fun of is easily my favourite of all time. I never get tired of watching it.
