Bueller?...Bueller?...Bueller?

On October 31st, 2008 we are recreating the parade scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off at the Village Halloween Parade. This will involve tens of thousands of people breaking out into the world's largest Beatles sing-a-long.

We want the streets to erupt in joy and for it to be one of the greatest experiences of everyone's lives.

We will need thousands of secret audience agents to get the ball rolling by imitating the extras in the scene and inspiring your neighbors in the audience to do the same.

We believe first and foremost in the power of joy and hope to celebrate this principle with you everyday for the rest of our collective lives.

Project Bueller: Who will you be?
Hello Friends, The best day of your life almost upon you!! How does it feel? We thought so. This Saturday REEL LIFE meets REAL LIFE at the Deitch Art Parade and the question is… do you know who you are going to be yet? If not, let’s take a look at some more extras from the parade scene. They are women, but they’re not terribly feminine, so keep reading dudes: you could pull this costume off. To the left we have lovely Rita, also known as Miss Chicago 1943.  She and other Miss Chicago pageant winners (circa the Jurassic period) were celebrating their erstwhile glory in downtime Chicago one day when Ferris hopped aboard a float of beer wenches and transformed the mundane into the magnificent. At first the Miss Chicagos pursed their lips and were about to shake their heads ever so slightly in disapproval until Rita, the leader of the social clique, let out an athletic whoop of “you go sonny boy!” joy.  You see, Rita realized that beauty pageants from 1943 didn’t matter—nor did the ones from 1986. What mattered was to treat EVERY MOMENT OF LIFE like a pageant. Twist, shout and bring joy to those around you. So if you think you have what it takes to bring Rita to the streets of SoHo, don’t let anything hold you back.
Also, the woman next to her looks like the slutty Southern one from “The Golden Girls” so there’s another costume idea right there. Thanks for the positive energy… we can’t wait to join forces and bring this thing to life!
