Man, Times Square used to be so much cooler. Well, maybe it wasn’t cooler if you were that punk dude nodding off, or that rollerskater (!) who gets hit by a car, but we would rather hang out than any of the people in this video than like 400% of Times Square now. When we worked in Times Square in 2007 our best friend was that giant Jay-Z Rocawear billboard above MTV. When your best friend is a billboard of a famous rapper… it’s really sad. DJ Donna Summer not only realizes that the mustachio’d bodybuilders of yore are the salt of the earth, he synched them to a sampler of his awesome Raw EP (forthcoming March 2 on Nightshifters) with vaguely creeping funk lilt, conjuring the salacious grit of the olden days (1980s) through the lens of futurist bass. Also, there is a naked chick in this video around two minutes in, so you should stop before then if you are at work, a public library, or any sort of institution that does not condone stripping.
