The Yes Men

Andy Bichlbaum, Leading Member of The Yes Men
Mike Bonanno, Leading Member of The Yes Men
Joe Garofoli, Reporter, San Francisco Chronicle - Moderator

Bichlbaum and Bonanno pose as top-notch representatives for large corporations and nations…yes, nations. At the Copenhagen Climate Conference last December, The Yes Men delivered a faux press release claiming Canada was reversing its position on climate change. And how can one forget the jaw-dropping statements made by "spokesperson for Dow Chemical" accepting full responsibility for the Bhopal disaster on worldwide news station BBC? Needless to say, they have a knack for striking chords of condemnation and admiration, stimulating polar perspectives simultaneously. Their latest documentary, The Yes Men Fix the World, has been hailed as "a riotous reminder that patriotism is often misconstrued as troublemaking." Get a load of The Yes Men.
