The ‘Gum Bowl: The Outtakes Reel
After rolling out this video series in which we met the bowlers, watched the first round of the tournament and championship match, there’s only one respectable place to go: all the tequila shots and genitalia euphemisms that for some reason our video editors felt weren’t germane to clips about charitable bowling. Might wanna plug in your headphones for this one if you’re at work.
If you’ve missed any of the photos, the videos, the performances of Woods and various et ceteras, poke around thegumbowl.com.
Many thanks to the bowlers for coming out and spending a few hours throwing rocks for charity: to Jon Glaser, Patrick Borelli, Doveman, Dawn Landes, Sondre Lerche, Tim Harrington, Nick Thorburn, Himanshu Suri, Baron Vaughn, Gabe Liedman, Gabe Delahaye, Max Silvestri, Kip Berman, Marnie Stern, Jemina Pearl, Alan Palomo, Elizabeth Harper, Larry Murphy, Kumail Nanjiani, and Khaela Maricich.
Kudos to Sam Carroll, Ari Issler, and the crew at 8 Feet Tall for their work on these clips. Also thanks to the musicians who allowed us to use their music throughout the series — in this clip there were remixes of Kristen Wiig’s “Champion” by Mr. Dream and Aislyn, and music from the Forms, Tanner Costin (aka Hoot), Myron Kingsbury, and Little Gold; previous clips featured Harper Blynn. Thanks to Brooklyn Bowl for letting us take over for a few hours, and to Woods, Effi Briest, and DJ St. Vincent for playing the concert we thew after we wrapped up the vagina talk. Thanks to the Adirondack Council for making the world a little better, thanks to Microsoft for helping making it all happen, and thanks for watching and coming out that night.
