To a television audience of 300 million, Andy (posing as a Dow Chemicals spokesman) announces that Dow will finally compensate the victims of the Bhopal disaster, causing the company s stock to instantly plunge by $2 billion. At an oil industry conference, the Yes Men introduce a wonderful new Exxon miracle fuel made from the bodies of global warming losers.
THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD 'shines with a raw wit and originality' (Newsweek) as it fearlessly follows the twisted logic of corporate capitalism to its absurd conclusion, exposing the hilarious absurdities and ironies of an economic system that ruthlessly rules the planet.

theyre nervy and poised and quick on their feet and my idols.
but the amazingness is in peoples' reactions to them. a freakin' case study in human psychology.
both really uplifting and quite sad too, but (like the daily show) at least the sad is sugarcoated with hilarity.
THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD follows Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonnano through five stunts and at times we feel as nervous as they must as a gag commences. All the tricks they pull amuse and educate, the biggest Bichlbaum posing as a Dow Chemical spokesperson who announces, via a worldwide B.B.C. NEWS telecast, that the company would spend $12 billion to compensate victims of the 1984 Bhopal pesticide plant catastrophe, which was caused by the company Dow had later purchased, Union Carbide.
The gag I like best wraps up THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD, where they publish a fake NEW YORK TIMES with news so fit to print, it isn't true. Stories include immediate, complete United States withdrawal from Iraq; a maximum wage for corporate executives; and the indictment of George W. Bush for high treason. The print edition is a collector's item but you can find the on-line Yes Men NEW YORK TIMES via exact phrase search "The Yes Men" and all the words "New York Times."
See THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD.
Some would say they are cruel, but those directly involved (in Bhopal, in New Orleans) say that their hoaxes brought needed attention to their problems, and they are grateful.
In the meantime, both the Yes Men and their audience are having a lot of creative fun.
