Around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday in New York City, Usher and his paddling opponent took a Ping-Pong table from the sidewalk to the middle of the avenue, between 46th and 47th streets, during a red light, flanked by a few photographers and a flock of onlookers keeping their distance.
And they started playing.
They knocked the ball back and forth until the light turned green and … they stayed in the middle of Sixth Ave.
Taxi cabs and cars came to a halt, and then slowly started to snake around them as they continued the game. There were some horns, but not many – partially because it’s New York and what’s the point, and probably because it was the first time a celebrity shut down a major throughway in Manhattan with a Ping-Pong match. Well, at least this week.
After about five minutes, they dragged the table back to the sidewalk and took a few more photos as Traffic flowed again. (And before any police arrived.)
