On Saturday, the nearly 30,000-strong Millions March in NYC coincided with the BroFest known as SantaCon, with the former walking purposefully from Washington Square throughout Manhattan while the latter group staggered its way south from Midtown. While there was obvious tension between the two groups of people, there was also noticeable compassion and support. The march ended around 6 PM at One Police Plaza but this video, taken at 7:30 PM in Murray Hill, captures both ends of the spectrum.
While one drunk Santa is everything terrible about SantaCon, yelling at a group of protesters gone rogue, another takes a stand against him. “That guy’s an asshole over there,” he says with a slight slur. “He’s yelling at nobody for nothing. Keep protesting, buddy.” Cheers, bro.
