There's a 'Girls' Bus Tour, But Why Stop There?
So, did you know that the show GIRLS has an on-locations bus tour in Brooklyn? It's true! For more than several of your hard-earned dollars you, too, can pretend to be one of the Greenpoint elite, traipsing down Meserole Avenue with the rest of the underpaid, over-stylized, and perfectly apathetic youth that most people imagine make up all of Brooklyn. Which is great because the whole thing sounds like a real prize: "The locations aren't exactly glamorous. But they're authentic," states Georgette Blau, president of On Locations Tours of the Bushwick warehouse and Cafe Grumpy locales. Who doesn't want to roll down the dusky, dirty streets of outer-Brooklyn for a premium just so they can say they experienced it? Nincompoops, that's who.
Which got us thinking: why stop at this truly brilliant and not at all buffoonic idea? There are PLENTY of other popular shows that could take this idea and run with it. Because it's all about branding and experiences, right?
