Baskit Underwear. (On Brandon, "Body Art" Jock.)
If you think shooting swimwear and underwear in the city made for awkward situations, imagine what it was like to shoot the guys in jockstraps.
We paused in the East Village in front of a popular Japanese sushi restaurant because Baskit Owner Eric wanted a backdrop which would match the "Japanese Body Art" underwear pieces. As Brandon stood in place for this shot, there were two Spanish speaking construction workers eating their lunch directly behind the wire fence behind Brandon. Eric noticed that when they turned and saw a man's large pair of white buttocks staring right at them, they yelped loudly, spit out half a sandwich, then jumped up and ran down the sidewalk, cursing in Spanish the whole way.
