Why?

They did it to raise money and awareness for homeless youth in Philadelphia, as part of the Covenant House “Sleep Out” program.

Eyewitness News did a ‘VO/SOT’ on it this morning, which is fancy industry lingo for “video + sound on tape,” where the anchor reads some copy before cutting to a soundbite:

  1. Charlie & Larry should show some balls and visit a nice bar in West or North Philly around midnight. They could sign autographs for all the Homies for charity. I’m sure they would raise a ton of money. Legendary Sonny Hill could provide security.

  2. Maybe they should have offered the vagrants a shower and a job. But, good luck pulling them away from their 40 ouncers and their favorite downtown corner pissing spot.
