This was great. When one person said they thought it was a protest, it reminded me of when I was just in New York. The street fair was set up in Times Square and when it was all done and the cops were trying to reopen the streets, there were hundreds of people blowing bubbles. We asked the cops what was going on and the said they had no idea. We also wondered if it wasn't some kind of protest, maybe it was just crazy New Yorkers. (We were like the people in the video and took pictures :)
