Crosswalk Countdown - GuerilLA from Kelly Herrington on Vimeo.

A crosswalk at Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade starts to count down. Once it hits 10, a group of enthusiastic party-goers begin to count down with it out loud (think New Years Even at Times Square). The clock hits zero, the blinking hand changes to solid and everyone begins to scream in joy. "Happy New Years!"

This is the latest "mission" from LA's version of Improv Everywhere -- GuerilLA-- and no joke, an "agent" couple got engaged during the wackiness.
