We're typically big fans of the crew at Improv Everywhere. The group's lighthearted antics bring unexpected smiles to the most unlikely of places, but their latest stunt may have gone a bit too far for some of us on staff. The group wrangled around 100 cars and parked them in a lot in Staten Island. Then, the owners were instructed to actuate the panic button on their key fobs from a hidden location, resulting in a "car alarm symphony." Needless to say, bystanders were perplexed by the cacophony. A handful of us here on Autoblog are into that kind of juvenile fun, while the rest of the gang sees car alarms as an octave below the baleful wail of the damned.

So, harmless fun or needless nuisance? We recommend checking out the video for yourself before voting in our poll below. Just remember, the world could stand to take itself a little less seriously now and again.
