Only in New York - Who Let the Dogs Out? :-)

'Improv Everywhere', a group of nutty folks who like to stage random and bizarre public events in New York, have struck again to celebrate the anniversary of the invisible-dog leash.

There they go walking their dogs on a peaceful Sunday afternoon.

For their latest mission, over 2,000 people walked “invisible dogs” down the streets of Brooklyn on a Sunday afternoon. The leashes were on loan from the current owner of 51 Bergen Street, the factory space where the invisible dog toy was invented in the 1970s. Participants of all ages spread out from Red Hook to Brooklyn Heights, very seriously walking their very silly dogs.

And what better way to commemorate a device that has saved the lives of no one by having literally hundreds of people take to the streets of New York with invisible dogs?

They even had a guy picking up "poop" after the dogs had passed by.

Hey, it breaks the tension of being stressed out with all of the latest news headlines, especially if their favorite sports team did not win!
