$10K Hidden Somewhere in NYC

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Hear me out guys, ok?  Because I’m about to tell you some crazy shit right now.  There is currently $10,000 worth of gold coins hidden somewhere in the City of New York.  All we know so far is that it wasn’t hidden in Central Park and that pirate puppets are behind it.  Ok, well, the “brains” behind this rag-tag group of pirate puppets, according to New York Magazine, are 2 Brooklyn-based artists/video editors. Clearly, they’re desperate for publicity, and you know what?  Maybe they’re just crazy enough to actually hide the money.

All of my unemployed and/or bored homies across the city of New York: THIS.IS.YOUR.MOMENT.  Did you ever in your wildest dreams ever think that you could legitimately be looking for pirate gold as an adult human being?  Take life by the balls, guys, and carpe diem, which, as one of the geniuses on Lamebook once said (though he spelled it “carpay deum”), means “live your life” in Spanish.

Anyhow, you can watch for clues on those crazy pirate puppets website here which come in the form of video episodes.  Good luck to all who decide to fulfill their childhood dreams.

    Ok, have you read the FAQs? This one is my favorite:

    “Why do you have a ninja?

    The real question is why don’t you have a ninja?”
