Invisible Dogs Appear in Brooklyn!





(Photos by Katie Sokoler, who seems to lead a very interesting life.)

Yesterday, 2000 invisible dogs invaded the streets of Brooklyn. Whether they were real or not is anyone's guess, but their owners had gathered in the Cobble Hill neighborhood at the request of the fine folks at Improv Everywhere. (The same people behind everyone's favorite stunt, Frozen Grand Central.)

If you would like to own an invisible dog of your own, they can be purchased on Amazon! For under $5! (No, I don't work for the company that makes them.)

Question: Do invisible dogs leave invisible poo? Something to ponder, my friends. Don't let your heads explode.

less concerned with invisible poo, and more concerned with how they're defying gravity...

The comments on the Improv Everywhere's site are so funny!
Here's the link:

Lioness: I'm assuming the lead it stiff, with a wire or something in them, and then the doggie harness thing.

I wonder if a chicken will fit into a dog harness with a leash...
