NYC “Silver Man” Shares Some Words With A Security Guard

Silver Man...

The “silver men” of Times Square and other such tourist hotspots have one job and one job only — to stand completely stationary, no moving, no blinking, like a statue, as droves of out-of-towners, some less affable than others, photograph, video tape, pose with, and otherwise dehumanize them. (And, no, that doesn’t even begin to include the abuse they endure from security guards, as seen here.) Simple! For $75 an hour plus tips, you might be convinced to give it a shot, too. Witnesses are unsure as to what, exactly, may have provoked this particular silver man’s unceremonious exit, but one thing is for certain: he’s getting the fuck out of there. [via Gothamist]
