People taking a ferry to work in Jersey City, New Jersey on Thursday got a bit of a surprise. A man was on a paddleboard. That’s slightly odd, but what was amazing was the man was dressed in a business suit and dress shoes. Of course all kinds of video was shot, then the man revealed himself.
Scott Holt is from Jersey City and was on his way to New York City to meeting a potential manager for his budding comedy career. Holt says it was tough to keep dry and almost fell into the water a couple of times. He ended up at a closed water taxi port where a police officer and irate water taxi captain where waiting for him.
The captain cursed him out because of how dangerous his stunt was, but luckily the cop let him go to the meeting. He made it on time, but he still doesn’t have a manager. On the up side, the creative guy says "I got a free commute and a free shoe shine out of it."
