Mayor Bloomstein Mispronounces "Garfunkel"

1st\NW Quadrant: The Approval Matrix

Yesterday[6\30\08], Mayor Bloomberg and Jon Bon Jovi announced that the Jersey rocker (now a resident of Manhattan) would be one of a select handful of artists to play Central Park. On July 12 he will take over the Great Lawn and perform for free for 60,000 fans.

In the above video, Bloomberg and Bon Jovi announce the concert together. Watch as Bloomberg makes some bad baseball jokes and then mispronounces the name of Art Garfunkel, one of the only artists to perform previously on the lawn (and one of Bloomberg's neighbors on 79th Street!) and Bon Jovi mercilessly teases him. -- NYMag
