Spend the Next 40 Seconds of Your Life Watching This Non-Hipster Williamsburg Christmas Moment

This very festive van was cruising the streets of Williamsburg yesterday, giving Bedford Avenue and environs a little bit of old time neighborhood flavor. The SUV had speakers on top and was blasting Dominic the Italian Christmas Donkey (a 1967 Brooklyn Christmas classic peformed by Lou Monte) so loud you could hear it from two blocks away. Click on the embed or on this link. You definitely ain't gonna get this kinda' thing on Park Avenue and you ain't gonna find it in Park Slope, neither. (Or at NorthSix or Northside Piers.)

For such a decidedly Italian moment, you think they could have procured an Italian flag for the side of the car instead of the Irish one.

And what I did see in Park Slope, recently, was an entire car painted as the flag of the Palestinians.
