NYC is Still Rad Oct 6, 2009

With all the videos I post about u-lock beat-downs, bike thieves caught in the act and pedicab throw-downs, I wanted to post something that shows NYC in a playful light. If you ride through the city on any given day, you’ll see a ton of pedestrians hailing cabs. Some step right into the bike lanes, practically taking the whole lane up while they impatiently flail their arm.

What I like to do is drop a high-five on the unsuspecting people. Some people laugh, some get pissed, others sit there un-phased. This video shows a ton of taxi-cab hailing high-fives in action. Love seeing the people’s faces!

    Getting high fives in the street is the best feeling ever. Especially when the person gets hyped.

    that was a great video for sure, thought about doing it a hundred times, or snagging a cigarette from a car window… though that might invoke a different reaction and burned fingers.

    haha, that metrocard guy is great!

  • Luke

    Top score!

    Dude in a black suit…what a loser…

    I do this all the time. The range of reactions in the video is exactly the range I’ve encouraged, with the exception of the suit. That’s just pathetic, and hilarious.

    Ha! Sweet idea.

    That’s pretty great. Totally with you that it’s nice to hear about people that are smiling in the city.

    I remember Jason did this when we were in town for BFF 2008, I was so stoked on it! This is the best kind of high five…
