You know the movie ‘A Christmas Story,’ right? (“You’ll shoot your eye out!”) Well, the street-theater group Improv Everywhere decided to re-create the scene where Ralphie and Schwartz watch as Flick gets his tongue stuck on a flagpole—except they didn’t do it on a playground, they did it on a New York City subway.
Instead of a flagpole, they used a commuter pole. Gross! But don’t worry, it turns out it was a prosthetic tongue and a magnet, so it appeared like he was really stuck. The “fire department” even comes to the rescue after Ralphie and Schwartz get off the subway, leaving poor Flick all alone and stuck to the pole.
