Screech, screech, screech!!!

Wake up, Staten Island!

Oh … those wacky pranksters. In the greatest symphony that nobody ever wanted, notorious attention-grabbing spoof troupe “Improv Everywhere” set off 100 car alarms at once in Staten Island, N.Y.

The car alarms were all flipped on at the same time using the hidden punkers’ keyless remotes. Aaaaand … things got extremely loud very fast!

Were the folks at Improv Everywhere aware that the prank would come off as extremely annoying to most of the everyday people in their immediate vicinity?

YES!

“Obviously car horns are not a pleasant thing, but we hoped that the sheer volume and absurdity of it all would make it a unique experience for the people who witnessed it,” the pranksters later put up on their website. “Some enjoyed it more than others, and there were quite a few laughs.”

Check out all of the hilarity below!

(For serious Viper fans, be sure to check out the Sidewinder car alarm as part of the mix. Can you spot it?)
