The subway's not always the friendliest place to be. It's hot and crowded; if it's raining, it's crippled and unpredictable; people fight, rats crawl on you, and crazies generally act out in incredible ways. But that's just how the subway is. Yes, sometimes you just want to bridge the loneliness and acknowledge the stranger next to you and just dance. But this huge subway party might be taking it too far.
Depending on who you are (i.e. a 20-year-old bro, or anyone else), this could be either amazing or terrifying. If, say, you've been in an office editing a website for 12 hours you might want a nice, peaceful subway ride and not a mouthful of streamers.
But the subway is not just a means to an end, but a loud and annoying public theater, apparently. Thus the Skakespearean actors honing their chops, comedians faux-fighting, exhibitionists showing off their finest underwear, and so on.
So far the interwebs haven't received this party so well (Gawker: Don't Even Think About Throwing A Subway Party) and the Village Voice ("Why would you record this douchery and put it on YouTube for all of posterity?"), so it's not clear how long this will stay up. But WATCH:
