The dance/contortionist troupe Pilobolus (named after a "sun-loving fungus that lives in cow dung") was in Cadman Plaza Park in Brooklyn Heights Friday, preparing to shoot a segment for Sesame Street.
McBrooklyn stumbled across members of this incredibly fit group of humans warming up for their roles as the letter "L," the number "4," and the words "octagon," "stuck," "unanimous" and "insert." A member of the troupe told us they were going to shoot some letters in Manhattan, as well.
Pilobolus, called "human Legos" and "human clay," performed to great acclaim at the 79 Oscar ceremony (with Ellen Degeneres).
Below is a video of the work they did for a Hyundai ad.
