"Can you tell me your stance on ‘Netflix and chill?'"
That was just one of the questions lobbed at unsuspecting passersby who stepped in front of a mic stand set up in front of the New York Public Library.
In the video, more than a dozen “reporters” blend into the crowd, waiting for people to take a photograph in front of a stand adorned with fake microphones from local news outlets like NY1.
Once people stepped in front of the mic, dozens reporters quickly descended while a fake press person helped direct the Q&A.
The actors did not shy away from the tough questions.
“What’s your response to claims that you receive texts but [do] not respond to them till days later?” asked a reporter after a young woman approached the stand.
“No, no that’s lie,” she responded while laughing.
