Slip ‘n Slide in Washington Heights Is Epic

by

Musically epic, that is.

Who knew that trash bags laid out over asphalt could be so dramatic! The video was shot back in July when the temperatures were in the triple digits. It does look like a lot of fun, and the hymnal classical soundtrack lends it a very Chariots of Fire air.

The guy who made it told DNA Info that it was a “dedication to summer in the Heights” and that “This is just a teaser of what’s to come from me.” Next up: men splash in kiddie pools to an opera soundtrack?
