Earlier today, an East Village resident sent a video to The Crosby Press, of comedian and Twitter legend The Fat Jew teaching an impromptu SoulCycle class to homeless people on a row of parked Citi Bikes near Tompkins Square park.
New Yorkers love hating on CitiBike almost as much as they love hating on SoulCycle (how y’all digging the new Williamsburg location?), so this video obviously has viral potential. But why homeless people? After the “class,” the videographer interviewed The Fat Jew briefly and he explained he wants those who can’t afford the whopping $35 for a Soul Cycle class to be able to have “gorgeous bodies.”
Are we looking at Mayor Bloomberg’s newest public health initiative?
