NYC stunt collective Improv Everywhere attempted to answer the latter question, enlisting a flash mob of 20 women to recreate the 1989 rom-com's infamous scene in Katz's Delicatessen (you know, that one). According to the group's website, the prank was staged unbeknownst to the deli's staffers, whose candid expressions are pretty priceless.
The video is the latest in Improv Everywhere's "Movies in Real Life" series, which has also revisited classic scenes from Rocky, Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings.
While it's difficult to top Meg Ryan's iconic performance in the film, these ladies give it a spirited try. We'll have what they're having.
