Synopsis

Satirical documentary featuring the 'Yes Men', anti-globalisation activists who pretended to represent the World Trade Organisation and right-wing political bodies on television news programmes and at conferences around the world, spreading misinformation to highlight the iniquities of untrammelled capitalism and the effects the WTO's policies can have on poorer countries. Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno found audiences eager to embrace borderline fascist proposals such as administering electric shocks to recalcitrant employees, if they thought these proposals were coming from a respected and influential body such as the WTO, and this documentary follows them around the world as they unleash their satirical pranks, including their claims to represent George W. Bush's re-election campaign.
