Yes, they can!

Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno are most prominent members of The Yes Men, a network of culturejammers who pass themselves off as spokespersons for large companies and organizations in order to comment on the absurdities and human rights violations of said institutions. Their interventions range from the absurd to the financially harmful, but their goal is always to focus the spotlight on the wrongs being commited by large institutions and the political factors that allow them to occur.
