Bikini & The City

Like no other short you’ve ever seen, abrupt end point et al.


Like the Da Vinci code, but more flamingo-centric. Friday’s post and a manstagram update last night should have alluded to the content you will be smacked with on this fine Monday morning, but in the event it didn’t, it’s important to convey one thing before we proceed: dancing is the key to happiness. That said, enjoy a video loosely directed and finely produced solely for your viewing pleasure. Lean del Ra is not back, but Flamingo Pete is.

Plage means beach and flab is chic, but you already knew that. Should you find yourself somewhat slow on the uptake, this video is a real life, true story: I produce low budget videos in various New York City locales summoning. All I want in life (this month) is for someone to come to the beach with me and not even the token East End pigeon or senior couple likely older than most buildings in the neighborhood are interested. Seemingly, marriage is neither where the perennial companionship starts nor where the repelling stops. Quite the contrary, in fact: various bodily hair stays un-shaved even longer and final adherence to the code of dental retainer laws abolish the notion of physical morning interaction. Now, after all that effort, I’m going to ask one more time, do you want to go to the mother-effing plage with me?

Video shot and edited by Superstar Shon, music by Crystal Fighters as discovered by Handsome Haim. Marysia Swim bathing suit, Ermanno Scervino jacket, MR. Dannijo necklace, My Little Pony Goes Drag Christian Louboutin heels.

  • Francesca maria

    And next on the man repeller, how to make your feet look like “peni” in a luscious garden of flowers. Along with a nice blouse, that assures you have no lady parts under there, and that somehow resembles a vagina, probably couture. Don’t forget the classic slight dropped crotch pant, you know they are successful when you sit down, it should look like you have a boner. Side note: a silk foulard tied around your neck in a way that it pushes your fat rolls up, and results in a double/triple chin is always a plus.

  • Sandra C Camp

    that is SO fabulous! made my day!

  • Rachel

    This is simply awesome.  

  • Genie

    Those shoes are epic, same goes with that jacket. You are hilarious, I couldn’t stop laughing! If I were one of those people that you happened to shimmy around, I’d probably start dancing with you, I mean what was up with those seniors, don’t they know that you’re THE Man Repeller? Jeez, some peeps now a days. Thanks for bring Pete back, I was starting to get worried that you had left him in Greece or something.

  • LOL you are too funny. Loved it!!! Gonna watch it again.

  • I am seriously late to this BBQ but after discovering what I thought was your video debut with Rebecca Minkoff (in a fabulous take on Call Me MAYBE!) I came here.  Little did I know you were “somebody.”  But a question that has caused me to miss out on sleep, or I suppose it could have been the cup of coffee I drank at 10:30 pm, but nonetheless the question remains “Who the fuck are you?”  No sarcastic undertones implied, but seriously who are you?  The bigger question is why is this senior citizen, yes I’m 50, woman from podunk America (and I shit you not this is podunkville if I’ve ever seen it), reading your blog, getting an utter kick out of it and NOW wanting to know about the author, yes you.  Other than you have some amazing style, kick ass shoes, a plucky flamingo side kick and some pretty cool admirers….what makes someone a Man Repeller?  Ya ya I get the clothes aspect of it, but while man repelling is a gift I was blessed with long ago (any tips on people repellant because I’m not much of a “people” person and I’d….I digress) I’m wondering what makes you a repeller?  Oh and I am so buying that Dannijo necklace.  Bravo.

  • Sammy

    I’ve been crying all evening because my boyfriend left me. Your video just made me laugh out love. Stay crazy beautiful <3

  • Freedmode

    Love it ,you are funny cool vidéo.

  • Gabi Montoya

    haha no way was that really just some random girl running away from you?

  • Aleksandra Paszkowska

    The video was so much inspiration! I’m really motivated to do something with hobos, exhibitionists or those weird people that go to supermarkets in the most bizarre clothing, in which they look like they lost a bet to someone cruel, yet they actually picked out the outfit themselves.

    I can hardly think of any outfits inspired by these, but I know that if you showed it, they must be the new thing for July. Perhaps a trench coat onto a naked body and a glued on mustache will suffice? Or should I stop showering? And perhaps actually lose a bet to someone who will make me wear a fishnet bodysuit?

    Ah, fashion dilemmas. All I know is that you did it right. Now, can I?

  • Celia
