THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD is a screwball true story about two gonzo political activists who, posing as top executives of giant corporations, lie their way into big business conferences and pull off the world's most outrageous pranks. This peer-to-peer special edition of the film is unique: it is preceded by an EXCLUSIVE VIDEO of the Yes Men impersonating the United States Chamber of Commerce. Because the Yes Men are being sued for this stunt, p2p is the only way that this film will get seen. Please spread the word!

From the Yes Men

"We have been impersonating people in power in order to make political points for over a decade. The Yes Men Fix the World is our second feature film. It's won a bucket of awards and accolades, but we're still broke. We are hoping that people who share it will donate some money so that we can do even more outrageous actions.

How outrageous? Outrageous enough to get us sued! Not long ago The US Chamber of Commerce took us to court for impersonating them. That is why on this special p2p version of the Yes Men Fix the World, we have included an exclusive video that the US Chamber of Commerce does not want you to see. You can only see this surprising film on the exclusive VODO p2p release.

One final note: making films takes lots of hard work. And money. We busted our asses to make this film and still owe our friends barrels of cash they loaned us. By supporting us and joining the Yes Men Labs, you not only get a membership card and an entry into the prize draw, you also help us to pay all those people back and fund future projects. We're sharing by P2P because we made this film to be watched, and with your help we'll able to carry on with what we love doing."

About the Yes Men

The Yes Men are Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno, a culture jamming activist-duo raising awareness around social problems caused by corporations. Operating under the mission statement of telling the truth and exposing lies, they practice a concept they call "identity correction", in which they impersonate entities that they dislike -- some would call it social engineering on a grand scale! From their offices in Milwaukee, they create and maintain fake websites similar to ones they intend to spoof, which have successfully lead to numerous interview, conference, and TV talk show invitations. These occasions are then used to expose, through parody and surreal humour, the dark motivations of our multinational world.

    Great fun! It takes some nerve, not to mention diabolical intelligence... to pull off the elaborate pranks devised by the Yes Men.

    This is the year's top documentary film.

    We think it is a serious matter when people willingly misrepresent themselves.

I LOVED this film! God it's so good and so true. For a more serious not on things though, go see some Alex Jones documentaries as well, they are on YouTube in full with titiles such as "ENDGAME: Blueprint For Global Enslavement" and "The Obama Deception" and "TerrorStorm" and "Fall of the Republic".

Overall...this film right here though....simply awesome!!!

I totally don't agree with some of The Yes Men's opinions. Better yet, you can say that I'm a rightist. But this is an excellent genius movie! Both funny and yet, make you think about their points, and personally, I do agree with some.

I've seen this movie earlier when the german-french TV station Arte showed it, and I am still thrilled about the whole idea. You Yes Men are great, and the movie comes along like something written bei Brecht, directed by Beuys (or vice versa) and starring the Marx Brothers. :-) It's civil courage, it's art and it's anarchistic fun! And it screams participation all over! What more can you ask for?
Reminded me of my wish to get in contact with you guys.

PS
Please(!!!) think about offering subtitles -- you should have at least french and german ones available from the Arte airing, don't you?
I can think of several people who'd be in love with this, but would not be able to watch the movie because they don't speak english well enough.

These guys need to take a good look at this series of films. Many people don't hold with the credibility of the Church Of Scientology, however the anthology is very acurate and entirely verifiable.

Hit "continue" at the end of each film. It takes a couple of hours to view the entire collection and the sidebar info. Well worth the effort for anyone who wants to see the reality of political medicine with the veils removed.

The Public Health consortium is using the World Health Organizations full resources in plain sight to illicit consumer fraud of massive proportions.

There is a long time discussion of international participants found at Dr Michael Siegal's blog the fact base within is a researchers dream.

I watched about half of it. While I love you are actively engaging people in a very unique way, I do not espouse to your views and could not even finish watching Fix the World. Your views are way to liberal. I am all for the environment and corporate responsibility, but you guys are way more left-of-center than I can support. Thanks for keeping these things in the publics eye, though!

Muy buena película, gracias por compartir ésto. Algo que me sorprendió es la facilidad con la que se puede engañar a mucha gente. ;-)

Brilliant, funny and sad; but such is life. I'd like to give you both a big hug for what you're doing. We've come a long way since Machiavelli; much more complex systems for lying, but as the world gets 'smaller' the deceit becomes more apparent. One criticism, its a little naive in not recognizing that Obama is 'business as usual' and is not there by mistake or indeed good fortune. Still, keep up the good work.

Brilliant! It reminded me of the early Michael Moore movies, with more humor and silliness. The gay backdrop running gag is priceless!!!

Great, really enjoyed watching this. Can't believe I didn't hear about the yes men before with the chaos they seem to cause in big time mass media.

This film has true power. I remember felling so depressed before watching it, for a number of reasons. I'm from Colombia, a nation that's been basically under foreign control since the 1900s. Worse of all, willingly. our corrupt government loves to profit from our terrorist guerilla wars and, the free trade moguls love it. It's crazy. SO after a couple of news headlines i was about run away from the internet when i found this. By the end I felt inspired. The people in power are clueless and you show us. Get em! I'd donate if i could.
