Invisible Dog Walkers in Cobble Hill

I don’t get it. According to The Gothamist, the Improv Everywhere Gang took 2,000 “dogs” for a walk in Cobble Hill Brooklyn, just a few blocks down from featured space for lease 226 Atlantic Ave. The invisible dog walkers were using a toy created in the 1970′s manufactured in Brooklyn. The toy factory is now an invisible dog art space full of vintage dog leashes. What is the point? I’m not sure. Perhaps I am not as cultured or artistic as this gang. I guess it’s good you don’t have to pick up after them? Check out the pictures of the scene below, and if you understand it, please explain. (Photos Courtesy Katie Sokoler)
