The Yes Men Fix the World: The BBC Bhopal Hoax

Political activists, Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno can’t take “no” for an answer! Over the past few years they have pulled off some of the world’s most outrageous pranks to expose social injustices, and big corporations and leaders who put profits ahead of everything else. This video is an excerpt from their movie The Yes Men fix the World. Brilliant, brazen and Yes, a must see!

In this video (an expert from the movie  The Yes Men fix the World), Andy poses as a Dow Chemical, spokesperson ‘Jude Finiseterra’ and gets invited to speak live on BBC on the 20th anniversary of the Bhopal gas tragedy (the largest industrial accident in history). Live on TV he announces that Dow (the present owner of Union Carbide, the company behind the spill) claims full responsibility for the disaster and will finally clean up the site and compensate the victims.  Worldwide people celebrated and Dow stock prices lost over $2 billion in value in 20 minutes, before the hoax was revealed.
