We all seen it, been a part of it and definitely have done it and it's such a funny thing even though you know it's gonna happen. Well, mostly funny to those who realize they're doing it.
Dis past November, wen one of my closest friends announced his engagement, of course we HAD to go out for a bachelor pah-tay. Our first stop was REAL - a Gastropub since we've all nevah been and it was suggested by a WWD! Hui reader.
Hmmm, just made me tink.... I nevah do one review on dat yet huh?
Anyways, as we were "documenting" - ok, ok, preparing blackmail - one of da bachelor's last night out as a free man, it was one of da weirdest moments wea practically everyone, including da surrounding tables, in unison either said or was tinking, "Wassup Wit Dat!".
Hea's da 411.
Da pub is a pretty small and tight layout especially upstairs wea we was at. Our table was about seven feet away from da staircase so it wasn't like you couldn't see us but as people and servers were coming and going, we had to "time" our Kodak moment. During a lull, we asked our server to take a pic for us. We waved a couple of people through and just as our waiter was framing da camera for a table pic, a group of people came upstairs. All but ONE stopped and voila! Da infamous arm pic.
It was da funniest thing and it happens to da best of us cause we've all seen it before wea you get a group of people posing a few feet away from a person in a "stance" and wen you see dis setup, you either stop or go around as a courtesy. If by chance you happen to walk through accidently, you normally quick step out while trying to duck and do da chuckle of shame.
Da group saw da setup as soon as they reached da top of da stairs but dis one guy kept walking through and pointed to an area wea they could sit. He must love to point and he must love da camera cause he was such a natural doing it.
Wassup Wit Dat!
Well, he was KITV's Meteorologist Justin Fujioka so I guess he thought he was still at work.
It was au'good and we all got a big laugh out of it and as WWD! luck would have it... we got da perfect pic right?
Do you evah notice da "setup"? Have you evah walked through one without noticing it? Noticing it then scurried off like you was walking on hot coals? Gave stink eye wen people do dat to you? No can smile good again cause you wasted your good smile and now all salty?
