The Yes Men

This is just a quick note about a couple of things--and to ask you for a big, big favor.

First, we're on the road, at the moment in Oregon, doing our strange variety of campaigning. We plan to keep going, mostly through swing states, up till November 2; watch here for updates:
http://www.theyesmen.org/blog/

Also, in just two weeks, on September 24, the movie about our *last* strange round of campaigning--a three-year stint posing as WTO representatives--will be released by United Artists in New York and Los Angeles.

In "The Yes Men," a lot of powerful folks, including our current "president," find their ideas and actions exposed and skewered in crazy, funny, and horrible ways. Many of those who have seen the movie in festivals have said they left the theater enraged, engaged, and full of the urge to act; even press screenings, usually dour events, have people rolling in the aisles, then writing us heartfelt messages.

A number of viewers have even told us they think "The Yes Men" could make a difference in the thinking of "middle America." Just in case they're right, we have to do everything in our power to make sure it gets to that audience.

This is where the favor comes in. If our movie doesn't have a big opening week in New York and Los Angeles, it won't go anywhere else--that's the way it works with small films these days. For folks in smaller cities to see it, "The Yes Men" has to be seen by many thousands of people in New York and Los Angeles the week of September 24. Can you help make that happen?

This movie (like our new book, http://www.theyesmen.org/book/) has already been ringingly endorsed by George W. Bush ("There ought to be limits to freedom") and the ex-director of the World Trade Organization ("Deplorable"). But believe it or not, even such glowing reviews won't get it into theaters in Toledo and St. Paul.

So please: on September 24 or in the week thereafter, if you live in or near New York or Los Angeles, PLEASE go see "The Yes Men." Take your friends. Take your enemies. Take people you've never met. And forward this message widely.

That way, other people you've never met, who live in swing states, will get yet another dose of political education in movie form--this one coated in a thick, sugary layer of laughs.

Your friends,
The Yes Men
