If you spotted Kim and Kanye, Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Drake at Tumblr’s 2014 Year in Review party, you can stop spazzing — they were just celebrity impersonators. But Reggie Watts in the ball pit? That shiz was 100% real.
A spy who attended last night’s party at Brooklyn Night Bazaar, hosted by The Daily Show‘s Jessica Williams, sent over this shot of Williamsburg’s biggest celeb (or at least, its biggest haired celeb) holding court near the ball pit in question. At some point in the evening, performers The 1975 also took the plunge. As did this girl right here. Blackflip!
According to Business Insider, Watts laid into his newest neighbors on stage, chanting, “J.Crew, J.Crew, J.Crew! Starbucks, Starbucks, Starrrrbucks! Pieces of shit, pieces of shit, pieces of shit!”
Our tipster said the musical comedian (comic musician?) also gave Marshalls a shoutout and that at one point, the red carpet was heavily guarded against the bevy of ragamuffins who lined up down the block to get in. “You’d think Taylor Swift was about to enter,” said our source. But there was no sign of 1975 frontman Matt Healey’s rumored love interest — unless she was in the ball pit, hiding from all the New Yorkers who hate her. The boldest name in the house seems to have been Tumblr founder David Karp.
Sounds like fun, but it’s not like they brought back CBGBs.
