Pranksters Film a ‘Public Music Video’ in the Streets of Manhattan

Public Music Video

In this funny clip, talk show host Jay Miller, comedian Casey Jost and scores of people in Times Square star in an impromptu video for the song ‘Otis’ by hip-hop artists Kanye West and Jay-Z. Oh, and did we mention that all the bystanders are unwitting participants?

Miller and Jost lip-sync to the song as they roam New York and film throngs of people going about their everyday business. Most are completely unaware that they’re being filmed for a music video and regard the duo with a combination of amusement and annoyance. Others are completely (and hysterically) indifferent to the shenanigans going on around them.

All in all, it’s a great concept and a truly funny video. What really sells it is Miller and Jost’s complete lack of self-regard as they make utter fools of themselves around complete strangers. On the streets of New York, we’d expect nothing less.
