Chicago, Are You Okay? What's Going On?

For some reason, billionaire Richard Branson was in downtown Chicago yesterday "recreating" a famous scene from the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off in which Ferris dancing on top of a float and—presumably, we're having some trouble remembering the specifics of the film here—grabbed unsuspecting teenagers and lifted them into the air while a crowd of ostensibly sane people smiled and took pictures with their iPhones as if what was happening was a normal and fun thing. Is everything okay, Chicago? You'd tell us if it wasn't, right?
