    I think so; he walked over afterwards to pick up the rest of his gear by the rest of his cop buddies who were standing near by. They congratulated him when he came toward them.

    It isn’t often that you see the police and the “boys from the hood” having a little fun and respecting each other’s talents. That cop surprised the hell out of me. For his body build I would not have expected him to be that limber and strong to hold his body weight in those positions. His core strength must be exceptional. The other fellow was simply amazing to be able to do his acrobatics like he did as well. Very impressive.

    I think you’re right.

    From a outdated NYC stagehand here, I am informed by buddies in the NYC movie market that this is most likely a “backstage” movie from a film/video capture. Observe the warddrobe shelves and “chicken boxes” (wardrobe accessories). Most likely qualifications stars eliminating time beween photos.

    Sorry, no way is that a real cop.

    Thanks for a happy Sunday morning. It’s not at all what I had expected from the article title..Smiles all around..

    From a retired NYC stagehand here, I am told by friends in the NYC film industry that this is most likely a “backstage” video from a film/video shoot. Note the warddrobe racks and “chicken boxes” (wardrobe accessories). Most likely background actors killing time beween shots.

    I wonder what the story is here. What kind of building are they in? Why do there seem to be traffic cones inside? Some YouTube commenters say it’s on a movie set, which would explain the wardrobe racks, but YouTube commenters are generally wrong about everything (and nasty about it too.) I like that they edited together several views, though I wish they’d just used a single audio.

    See, NYPD? Not a single black person was shot or otherwise beaten.

    Though, whoever was recording in vertical video should have been shot and beaten.

  • S1AMER

    Yeah, that was the first thing that popped into my head. For all its many problems (and, jeez, they got problems in NYC), there’s no place quite like it for delightful human interactions.
