Invisible Dogs


Yesterday’s Improv Everywhere Invisible Dogs all over Carroll Gardens made me and our little Ella Joy happy.

Imagine thins: 2,000 (!) people participated in yesterday’s mission in Brooklyn. For those of you who were not there – Improv Everywhere passed out over 2,000 “invisible dog” leashes and had everyone go for a nice Sunday walk in Brooklyn. If you were anywhere within a one mile radius of the Bergen St. stop in Cobble Hill today, you would have seen all types of folks very seriously walking their very silly dogs.

The invisible dog toy was invented in the 1970s in the Brooklyn factory that served as their meeting point yesterday. No Longer Empty and The Invisible Dog art space were nice enough to loan them the vintage dogs for an afternoon of fun.

If you were there, please leave an Agent Report in the comments on their site. There are thousands of funny stories waiting to be told. Also leave links to any photos you might have been taken. They hope to have their video up in a week or so.

  1. So cool!
    I took the Bergen St. station this morning and I missed this?? That’s what I get for not being late this morning.
    Grrrr (human, not dog).

  2. Wow, that’s wonderful!

  3. I grew up in Carroll Gardens and proudly had an invisible dog leash during the 70s in Brooklyn. Back then the little girls walked their invisible dogs without a trace of irony.
