Participantsless

We secretly hoped that by moving to Manhattan, we’d become famous.

Little did we know it would be the FIRST weekend here.

To be honest, I was so distracted by the kid with the camera in my face that I hardly even noticed the men in their undies.

You’re intrigued now, huh?

Mark thinks it's to bad you guys didn't take your pants off...wait...we never actually saw beneath yon torso...you definately should have represented and sported the matching knee lengths.

Amber and Zach said...

WOW! You guys look great on the sub! ha ha! that is so funny!

Missy said...

Haha! That is so funny, especially since the pantless riders seemed so casual about it. You definitely should have joined in :)

That is so awesome!! Forget being mugged. New York is great. Jon has told me about the "Improv Everywhere" before. I'm so glad you not only, got to witness it firsthand, but you are now on youtube. (That's hard to do these days) And you both look smashing, might I add.

I Heart NY! Of course they put your adorable blushing mugs on camera.

Ashlie & Deven said...

I love how much fun you are already having in New York. And what good blog read it makes. Too funny that its your REAL life!!

Blake and Jenn said...

no way! How did you find that or did they tell you what was going on after you looked all surprised? That is awesome though...uh...can I have your autograph? Looks like you're enjoying the adventures!!

No - nobody explained it! I asked the camera guy what the camera was for and I did ask one of the pantsless guys what the deal was... I figured it was some guerilla marketing tactic and if I had executed something so brilliant, I'd want people to ask. But nothing. Really vague, no answers.

Noah and I meant to google it when we got home but didn't really think of it again. The next day, Noah ran into an old friend at church and on Monday she sent us a link to the video asking if it was us. I'm so glad she did!

melissa said...

OMG that video was HILARIOUS. (And your coat is adorable.)

Jacob R said...

I knew it was Improv Everywhere! I can't believe I was there in NYC and I didn't participate. What was I thinking?

allyn said...

i was wondering how you found it. hilarious. did you have the urge to take off your pants in such lovely weather?

AJ and Cindy said...

oh my gosh! that was hilarious! How funny ;) It was good to see you guys...even if it was on that video :)

cacrowell said...

funny. Welcome to big cities and OPEN expressions of opinion--whenever and wherever! That's awesome--you're stars on your first weekend in NY, too!! I'm waiting to join the "biggest fans club" link on your sidebar. Way funny.

I want your autographs, don't let me forget to get them in October!

I've been thinking about you guys! but have been thrown into it full on over here since coming home. As it turns out we're all looking for a place to live at the same time -us, you, J & C -am I missing anyone? We got 2 minutes notice we had to be out of our place. Luckily we got somewheres to go -there was only one house available to look at as it turns out. I guess that makes that easy!

Now we are in the midst of a move but I want to hear all about everything -hopefully I'll get a chance to call when we're a little more settled!

Hope things are going well! Love and miss you guys!

Jed said...
