Improv Everywhere re-created the famous orgasm scene from When Harry Met Sally… (video)
As part of the troupe's Movies in Real Life series, 20 couples flocked to Katz's and simultaneously simulated an orgasm, à la Meg Ryan
Wed Nov 13 2013
For the past few months, Improv Everywhere has been staging iconic scenes from beloved films throughout the five boroughs, including Raiders of the Lost Ark in Central Park and Jurassic Park in Prospect Park.
The latest episode riffs on Nora Ephron's classic 1989 rom-com When Harry Met Sally…—specifically, the scene in Katz's Delicatessen that launched a thousand discussions on orgasms, when Sally (Meg Ryan) proves that women fake 'em all the time. Dozens of women (including one dressed as Sally) convened on the Lower East Side deli and reenacted the scene, to the general amusement—and, in some cases, annoyance—of other patrons. Which we get—like, you're trying to eat your sandwich in peace, and then suddenly an orgasm flash mob starts up next to you? We'd be annoyed.
Anyway, check out the video below, and keep an eye on IE's YouTube page to see what movie they take on next. New episodes go up every Tuesday.
