Everyone remembers that scene in When Harry Met Sally when Meg Ryan confidently proves women can actually fake a believable orgasm. That memorable moment was filmed in NYC’s famous Katz’s Deli where locals and tourists alike flock daily to have the world famous pastrami sandwich. You know, what she’s having. A sign still marks the center table with the text “where Harry met Sally… hope you have what she had!”
The scene and location lent themselves perfectly for Improv Everywhere’s recent series, Movies in Real Life. The New York City-based prank collective infiltrated Katz’s with over 40 fake couples. The difference in this prank, which was staged without the knowledge of the restaurant, and the movie was that all 20 women joined in to present evidence that women can in fact, fake it. Hilarity, naturally, ensued.
