In April, comedian Scott Rogowsky made up some fake book covers, slapped them on some hardcover books, and took to the subway to make some nosy people laugh (and gullible people gasp). He did it again this month, riding the L train with fellow comedian Akilah Hughes in a video called "Subway Reading: The Sequel." Scott and Akilah made up a whole slew of new books, including the non-existent New York Times Bestsellers Unsightly Genital Rashes: A Coloring Book and Ever Been With A Black Girl? Call Me 473-551-9918.
Great Vaginas Through History is the long-awaited follow-up to The Vagina Monologues.
Part of pulling a stunt like this in public is capturing the public's reaction. And people did react. Even jaded New Yorkers who could probably see a rat steal someone's briefcase and not blink an eye couldn't help being lured in by these fake book covers.
