Notorious mischief-makers the Yes Men (Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno) are an activist duo known for
their outrageous interventions at business events, on the internet, television, and in the streets. Armed with nothing but thrift store suits, the Yes Men impersonate big-time corporate evildoers in order to draw attention to their crimes against humanity and the environment, helping to raise awareness and build public pressure for change. These irreverent tactics (“identity correction”) have a proven track record of hijacking the public dialogue worldwide about the issues of the day – free trade, global capitalism, and now the end of a livable planet, and have called out such heavyweights as the World Trade Organization, Dow Chemical, Exxon Mobil, and Halliburton, as documented in their previous award-winning films, The Yes Men and The Yes Men Fix the World. Now, The Yes Men Are Revolting adds to their hit list some of the biggest climate criminals, hilariously targeting such planet-plundering entities as Shell Oil, Gazprom Oil, and the US Chamber of Commerce. As a result of their two decades of work, the Yes Men have discovered that tackling hard-boiled issues with huge dollops of laughter is a powerful tool for change, and now they want everyone to get involved in the fight.
