"Oh....JAY Z! I KNOW about Jay Z!"


Best part of the vid. Excellent find, subby.

/Happy Birthday, Jigga.

His chuckle laugh is always good for a smile

I like the fact that he gets on the subway surrounded by security guys, with tons of people screaming, and she goes "are you famous?".

.....Although it is New York. People probably pull bullshiat stunts all the time.

Something about this just screams FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE.

Did he tell her that there's no sleep till Brooklyn?
 
2012-12-04 10:38:01 PM
Cute video, though his body posture really throws me off, he's almost leaning away from here, yet has no trouble engaging in conversation and even offers his hand to her to shake. Odd.
 
2012-12-04 10:38:07 PM
I don't get the appeal of his music, but he seems like a good guy.

I like stories like this. There's another one about Brad Pitt being on a plane (first class I'm sure) next to an older woman who asked him what he did, and he told her that he was an actor. When the plane landed and they were getting ready to exit the plane, she patted his hand and told him that she would be thinking about him and praying that he would get his big break. He just smiled and thanked her. This was at the height of the Meet Joe Black/ Fight Club days.

I met Tom Wopat in the subway after a Yankees game a few years back. That was cute.

I know it is New York but what are they odds he gets on a subway and sits next to her.

His music sucks. But he's a rich bastard too. I dunno which reason to use to hate him more.

/But I don't hate him.

He's a goofy looking dude that bagged a gorgeous talented woman at the absolute peak of her own fame?

If I had been on that subway, I would have yelled at him by saying, "You took away my Nets from New Jersey you dick, into a city which already has a long beloved basketball team! You also turned your 'old neighborhood' into Brett Ratner's 'Billionaire Playground", so you're both a sellout and a yuppie at the same time!"

And you would've promptly got the shiat beaten out of you by his bodyguards.

Ellen Grossman is famous in her own right. Jay-Z got so lucky sitting next to her and having a chance to talk to her.

I don't listen to his music, and don't watch the entertainment news on tv very often, so I've only seen his name in print. I have always thought of him as "Jay Zed" (kinda like Zed Zed Top). Came as a shock to hear him introduce himself as "Jay Zee."

CSB time: Something very similar happened to me a few years back. I was on a flight cross-country and offered up my exit row seat to a guy behind me who obviously needed the legroom far more than I did. I don't follow basketball so I had no idea who he was, but it turned out he was a top college player who would be drafted in the first round later that year.

The flight still wasn't very comfortable for him, though. People kept coming up to him and saying "Kevin! Kevin! Is that really czetie from Fark sitting behind you?".

Nope, not a troll. Just Canadian. Although, in all fairness, 99.99% of Canadians probably call him "Zee Zee."

I can't say I wouldn't do the same as the lady. I'm pretty certain that if ANY celebrity walked up and sat next to me, I'd have no idea who they are or what they do.

My wife is great at the "celebrity name game". We'll be watching a TV show and she'll ask me if I recognize some person. Of course i don't. She'll look at my flabbergasted and say "The movie we watched last night, he was in it, hint hint..." i usually look back and say "What movie did we watch?" and she gives up on the game. It was 1.5 hours of entertainment, yesterday. I don't put that much value into TV/movies that I care to recall what actor was in some TV show / movie i saw in the past.

Years ago, when I worked in a hotel, there was guest who looked so familiar to me but I just assumed he was someone I knew from school. As I was leaving a co-worker asked me if I'd seen "The Monk" and it finally made sense. So, like you, I obviously can't tell if people are celebrities or not, I just assume they are something I met at a bar in college.

I was at a hotel bar talking to a guy for almost ten minutes before I realized he was Kirk Herbstreit.

You win! I had to look him up. I don't do well with the sports entrainment either.

/coincidentally, i watch the most football I've sat down for in nearly 30 years. The host had the "redzone" channel on. I left feeling VERY schizophrenic.

I was backstage at a metal concert talking to the singer from Gwar for about half an hour and had no idea who he was until a friend mentioned it afterward. Really cool guy, I like to think that he talked to me because I didn't go all fan-boy crazy on him.

Haha yeah it used to weird me out too when I lived in Singapore and all the international kids would say "Zed" and "Haytch." Really weird.

Can't be a hater if everything I said is true. Well, everything other than the anger at him taking the New Jersey Nets away to Brooklyn... Everything else though is true, as far as I am aware! :)

Was at the gate at LAX a few months ago, looked to my left and there was Mr. T-1000 himself Robert Patrick. We exchanged nods, he winked at me and that was that. I wanted to ask him if he was on his way to Atlanta to look for John Connor. But I thought better of it.

/not as CSB as meeting Jay-Z on a subway

I met a famous basketball player at an animal shelter I was volunteering at. I just thought he was a nice, albeit freakishly tall, kid looking for a cat for his mom. I walked out to the parking lot with him and there was this fully loaded black Lexus. That's when I realized he was some kind of pro athlete. I patted him on the shoulder and said, "I hope you find a nice pet." Turns out he likes helping animal rescues and was new in town and was checking out the local rescues to see which one he'd help.

/not into sports, so I don't recall his name
