Last week’s video of a woman walking the streets of NYC for 10 hours proved what Lena Dunham already knew: everyone in NYC is subject to catcalls. And it immediately became fodder for parodies. Here’s the latest, filmed in part on the Lower East Side — it was sent over by Scott Rogowsky, who just celebrated three years of his live talk show Running Late.
Scott Rogowsky, the guy who helped “homeless (hipsters)” in McCarren Park and ambushed potential roommates by sicking Gilbert Gottfried and Andrew WK on them, is back with another prank. His target this time? Gym bunnies.
Hot on the heels of The Onion’s “hipster molting season” video, Scott Rogowsky has gone and kicked Williamsburg’s scruffier denizens while they’re down. In the video above, the host of Running Late dresses in his preppiest attire (at least, we hope that’s his preppiest attire) and reaches out to McCarren Park’s “homeless (hipsters),” as he puts it to us in an email. Here’s hoping he eventually gave that fruit to the actual homeless folks in the park.
“Imagine walking into an apartment and you think you’re going to an open house,” says Scott Rogowsky. “Who would be the most mindfuckable people you could see?”
