Peep Show

These kids were peeking into the store window of the Virgin Megastore at Union Square yesterday. The video they are watching is a new comedy that has just been released on DVD. I think the advertising campaign for the DVD release is pretty brilliant.

No, I'm NOT GOING to ask if anyone of you have been to a peep show. So no question today.

NB: Sorry for the blurry photo. It was hard to focus when the temperature is below freezing outside.

Too cold to be out taking NEW pictures Ming.

Love it. I remember peep show machines on the pier at the seaside when I was a kid. You put a penny in and turned a handle and a nearly nude lady danced for you.

Haven't been here in many days -- sorry, work is insane. In fact, I have been to a peep show—on the "old" 42nd Street—with a friend who had to go for a class she was taking when she got a Masters in Human Sexuality at NYU. I won't go into details, but one of the other "customers" fell out of a booth stone cold dead, and I spent half the night answering questions from the police!
