We'll be sending another very soon with some exciting news and upcoming release plans. Thanks again for your support and patience - we're excited to share the film with you!

      In October you said something about a Canada film release. Now its another half a year later. No news.

      This is really disappointing guys. We gave you nearly 150.000 dollars on Kickstarter, and you can't take the time to comment on your progress since January 2013??

      <-- desillusioned....

    4. Creator Øystein Jakobsen on August 28, 2014

      Last comment on this page was a year ago. Time for an update perhaps from our favorite troublemakers?

    5. Creator Georg Birkner on August 22, 2013

      no vid (or deleted vid) to uptdate 21 ?

    6. Creator Matthew Bear-Fowler on May 2, 2013

      What's the latest on this? It's been a long time since we've seen an update!

    7. Creator Anthony Robinson on April 27, 2013

      sure could use an update from you Yes Men. Do you still even exist, and if so, will you be sending me my decoder ring etc any time soon?

    8. Creator Mara Thompson on February 28, 2013

      Thank you for the update #18!!!!! We are still here, glad you are too!

    9. Creator Andrew Wolf on February 28, 2013

      Dear Yes Men, can I change my prize? I want the Andy Bichlbaum Bobble Head now. Thanks

    10. Creator Ashley Soutor (deleted) on February 25, 2013

      Congratulations! Curious about the book and items sent to backer - did those go out yet?

    11. Creator Susan J Gibson on February 14, 2013

      I haven't received a backer survey.

    12. Creator The Yes Men on January 21, 2013

      Now you can start revolting!

    15. Creator Elfwyn on December 1, 2012

      Congrats! I'm looking forward to see what you have in store for "them" and "us". :-)

    16. Creator Derek Stinson on November 30, 2012

      wish u guys well, make us proud.

    17. Creator The Yes Men on November 26, 2012

      We expect S, M, L, XL, XXL!

    18. Creator Jamas Enright on November 26, 2012

      What sizes do the t-shirts come in?

    19. Creator jennifer on November 26, 2012

      "US defends 'enormous' climate efforts at UN talks"

      http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/US-defends-enormous-climate-efforts-at-UN-talks-4065965.php

      Where you guys down there?

    20. Creator Elfwyn on November 25, 2012

      @Joseph
      Matching you and raising to $60.

      Anyone else??

    21. Creator Joseph Lynch on November 25, 2012

      I reckon we can go up to $110,000. I've donated $55, anyone wanna match me?

    22. Creator snooty on November 25, 2012

      I don't have friends.

    23. Creator Robert Foss on November 22, 2012

      Will there be non-US action coordinated by the organization?

    24. Creator Jérôme LF on November 22, 2012

      Hi, just wanted to say: love you guys! You ve played a good part in my intelectual development, along with other good people like Chomsky. The elites want us to fight a war between nations on behalf of global competition, but that's not our war, and we can perfectly live without them.
      You are amazing.

    25. Creator Joseph C on November 22, 2012

      Your first movie pushed my to become involved in activism ultimately leading to a great experience with the Occupy Movement across North Carolina. I look forward to this film and the future of the Yes Men and Yes Net.

    26. Creator Jamas Enright on November 21, 2012

      BTW... yay FUNDED! Although I see a big stretch goal coming in...

    27. Creator Flora Doehler on November 20, 2012

      @Casey…right on!
      @Yes Men…..I love your work and am so glad I could contribute. Go get em!!

    28. Creator Casey Paleos on November 19, 2012

      you guys are rad. love this project!! i only wish there were more like these on kickstarter. hopefully this will be an inspiration for other would-be revolutionaries.

      DEATH TO TYRANNY!!

      p.s. in the interests of maintaining a positive vibe & not being a revolting troll, i will refrain from calling out a certain disgruntled briton with respect to gripes about shipping costs outside of the U.S.

      suffice it to say that kickstarter is not a marketplace, it is a platform for facilitating grassroots support. the prizes are really secondary, and for a project with this sort of ambition, perhaps even tertiary or-- goddamn it, i'll say it-- quaternary. i'll leave the hyperbole there since i don't know what the word for 5-ary is and pentiary doesn't sound right.

      my point is, the prizes are beside the point. if you believe in the project, back it. if the Toy Surprise Inside is the only thing that's motivating you, then perhaps this ain't really your box of cracker jacks. that is all.

    29. Creator Nicole Sorochan on November 19, 2012

      I Love you guys and I love what you do! Let's get Revolting ASAP :)

    30. Creator Kracky on November 19, 2012

      wow guys!!!!!!!!!!!! this is so revolting!!!!!!!!!! It will work out!!! Less then 9000 and 11 days to go! Revolution of love is possible! Just beleave!!!!!!!!

    31. Creator Kracky on November 18, 2012

      Lets do it!!!!!! less then 10000!!

    32. Creator Sarah on November 12, 2012

      I'm happy to be able to support your project and I'm so glad you've continued this work! From a former Mac III dorm-mate of Mike Bonanno's.

    33. Creator The Yes Men on November 9, 2012

      Very true, John! Thanks for being so revolting yourself. Of course, it is a minimum goal, and it's important to remember that every dollar over that minimum is a dollar less we have to raise later, and the quicker we can finish the film. Thanks so much for your support!

    34. Creator John Heerens on November 9, 2012

      Only a quarter of the goal left. We are so revolting!

    35. Creator John Heerens on November 5, 2012

      I live in the Netherlands and I don't feel excluded. Shipping is nasty business. Often it just isn't possible to get good prizes for it. Also it costs a lot of time and energy to figure out what the costs are exactly for every place you might want to send it to. All that extra energy can go into this movie instead, so we pay a little extra (and not even a ridiculous or unfair amount). I can't say I mind.

    36. Creator The Yes Men on November 5, 2012

      Hey Paul, thanks for your comment. We don't mean to make it harder for people outside of the US to help fund our project; that said, since we're currently based in New York, we do have to ship the incentive gifts from here. And, unfortunately, it costs much more to send boxes full of Yes Men goodies outside of the United States. The extra money covers shipping & handling and allows all of your gift to go straight to the project that we're trying to create. All that said, we're so grateful for your support. Thank you.

    37. Creator Paul Caulfield on November 5, 2012

      Well done all.

      As someone in the UK I am a little disappointed with the very US centred view that those in the US get pledge gifts free, then there is the entire rest of the planet over 6.8 Billion people lumped together under ROW who are charged very very expensive postage. Not very progressive or inclusive guys!!!!!

    38. Creator John Heerens on November 1, 2012

      Almost hit 60.000!

    39. Creator The Yes Men on October 30, 2012

      Hi Chris,
      Unfortunately, Amazon Payments is the only method to pay via Kickstarter. Check out our FAQ at the bottom of the main page for more information. Thanks so much for your pledge!

    40. Creator christopher lee on October 30, 2012

      Hi, good luck with your project. I only pledged $25 buck but it was collected amazon which is one of the most exploitative fulfillment houses. The hide by sub-contracting out warehouse labor and pay crappy wages. Can't you find a more worker frieldly way of collecting payments. I know it is very difficult and they have a near monopoly in some cases, but please take a look.
      Thanks

      Chris

    41. Creator The Yes Men on October 30, 2012

      Thanks Jeroen, you're awesome!

    42. Creator Jeroen Baert on October 30, 2012

      I just doubled my pledge amount because I love what you guys are doing. Had so much fun with last movie. Keep going strong!

    43. Creator Thomas Winter on October 29, 2012

      I am very happy to be able to support this project, it just has to become a reality!

    44. Creator John Heerens on October 29, 2012

      Over half already. I hope this takes off and am really happy you guys are willing to stick out your neck to make it so!

    45. Creator Rob Vincent on October 28, 2012

      I'm totally excited to be a part of this!

    46. Creator The Yes Men on October 28, 2012

      Of course we'd love to go all copyleft - depends on how much we're able to raise through Kickstarter. The more we raise here, the less we have to seek outside sources (who tend to bring caveats to the distribution process). So... short answer: hopefully, but we need more help to do it!

    47. Creator Richard Pilgrim on October 28, 2012

      I loved "The Yes Men Fix the World" and I can't wait for this movie to be released. Is there any plan for it to be released under a copyleft license like your last movie?

    48. Creator Anuradha Iyer on October 27, 2012

      For a fun, creative and a must-happen revolution! Yay Yes Men!!!

    49. Creator Karen on October 26, 2012

      This gives me hope in humanity. Go get 'em boys!
