Just when I thought Betsy Gotbaum had the best YouTubes, here’s Eric Gioia out with a minimalist video featuring documentarian Morgan Spurlock (he’s the Super Size Me guy, but he also has a new movie about looking for Osama Bin Laden.)
“I’ve known Eric Gioia ever since we were roommates in college,” he says. “He’s like the energizer bunny.”
The video isn’t flashy, but seems professionally made, and oddly reminds me of some of Anthony Weiner’s ads from the 2005 mayor’s race. That wouldn’t be their first connection (and it may explain where this thing was shot, considering there aren’t many brownstones in Sunnyside).
The clip was released in connection with Gioia’s “green” birthday party fund-raiser, which is happening Thursday.
