If you have been to NYC you know the traffic is no joke especially at lunch time in Manhatten. It sure does not help when a celebrity decides to stop traffic for a game of Ping-Pong right in the middle of 6th Ave!
Around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday NYC, Usher and his paddling buddy dragged a Ping-Pong table from the sidewalk to the middle of the street, during a red light, and they started their match.
They played until the light turned green and … they still stayed in the middle of the street.
Cabbies and cars stopped and slowly started making their way around the players as they continued playing. A few horns were honked but considering it’s New York that is nothing new. What is new is that Usher is the first celebrity to shut down a major street in Manhattan with a Ping-Pong match.
After a few minutes, they dragged the table to the sidewalk and took photos as traffic flowed again and of course before NYPD arrived. :)
