For four long years, the Yes Men (Andy Bichlbaum & Michael Bonanno) impersonated World Trade Organisation officials on international TV and at business conferences around the world. They first gained notoriety after their spoof WTO site http://www.gatt.org was mistaken for the real thing. They went to every extreme to satirise WTO policies, even deploying at one point a metre-long golden phallus - but none of the experts noticed! A recent film on their WTO exploits was released by United Artists (2004).
