A recent Diet Mountain Dew commercial has been the talk around town in the puppetry world. It pokes funÂ at aÂ crazy law inÂ New York City Administrative code section 10-114 that states:
a. It shall be unlawful to give any exhibition of climbing or scaling on the front or exterior of any house or building.
b. It shall likewise be unlawful for any person, from any window or open space of any house, or building, to exhibit to the public upon the street, or the sidewalk thereof, any performance of puppet or other figures, ballet or other dancing, comedy, farce, show with moving figures, play or other entertainment.
c. Violations. Any person who shall violate any provision of this
section, upon conviction thereof, shall be punished by a fine of not
more than twenty-five dollars, or imprisonment for thirty days, or both.
Well, I finally foundÂ this hillarious commercial,Â and posted my finding here on my blog, and on the Muppet Central Forum. Enjoy!
