NYC Marathon VS YouTube Music Awards

As an avid runner and proud New Yorker, journalist and prominent YouTuber Casey Neistat never misses the New York City Marathon. 

But this year the race fell on the very same day as the first ever YouTube Music Awards.

Casey had tickets to both, and really didn’t want to miss either.

He was up at 5:30 AM to get to the starting line, and hoped he would finish the 26 mile race in time to get back home, change, rest, and make his way to the red carpet.

Will he make it

New York Subway Train Conductors Smile

Train conductors of New York City‘s MTA must point at a black and white sign at every stop to prove they are paying attention. 

Yosef Lerner and Rose Sacktor took advantage of this by holding up cutesy signs that read, “point here if you are sexy,” or, “point here if you are not wearing pants.”

It brought a little happiness to the conductors’ daily grind, and now the video of their uplifting shenanigans is going viral. The video is already trending on DailyDot, Gothamist, Gawker, and BuzzFeed

NYPD Try To Stop Skateboarders During Broadway Bomb Skater Event

The Broadway Bomb is a skater event involving thousands of longboard skaters rolling down Broadway towards the Financial District in Manhattan.

This year, the police attempted to literally block the event by putting up nets and arresting skaterboarders. 

The thing is, they weren’t that success as is evident by this amusing viral video of the NYPD-skater clash. 

The clip was posted on YouTube by Shredboard two weeks ago, and has since collected over 900,000 hits!

Benny Hill has never been more appropriate. 

Read more about the event on Gothamist, NYDailyNewsHuffPost, FoxNY, and NetworkA

Back To The Future In Real Life In Manhattan

As the web is so heavily populated with people who grew up in the 80′s and 90′s, it’s no surprise that Back To The Future is one of the most iconic films online. 

Capitalizing on this fact, Improv Everywhere brought the popular Steven Spielberg time travel movie to life at a plaza near the Met Life Clock Tower in Manhattan as a part of their Movies In Real Life series.

Passersby quickly picked up on the gag after seeing a guy on a date wearing a bright orange jacket, and a woman asking coffee drinkers to ‘save the clock tower.’
