Rocky In Real Life

(YouTube link)

Everyone in Philadelphia knows Rocky when they see him! Dan Black recreated Rocky's famous run through the streets, gathering a mob of 100 or so kids, ending at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and delighting everyone along the way. Most of the kids were recruited for the stunt, but there were several who joined in along the way, urged on by their parents!

This is the first episode of a series called Movies in Real Life, from Improv Everywhere. They will recreate a different movie every Tuesday. See behind-the-scenes pictures and read how they pulled it off at the Improv Everywhere site. -via Laughing Squid

Someone just figured out the actual route Rocky took in Rocky II and saved it on the USATF site. Just over 30 and a half miles. That is almost 50K! I think there are whispers of a Rocky Balboa ultra marathon using the same route. Living in the suburbs of Phila, and being a runner aspiring to be an ultra marathoner, I would do this race.
