Mission #5: Joie de Vivre

Note: The 2010 scavenger hunt is over (a concluding post will come soon) and we got first place out of 121 teams! This is a series explaining the background and thinking of our missions of the SF Street Food Scavenger Hunt 2010!

Mission: Even this guy would agree that this mission is awesome, baby!

First of all, we need you to find the place in San Francisco where our loud friend from the video most likely stays when he comes to San Francisco. Once on location, we need you to use your surroundings, use props and use your natural acting ability to show us what brings you joie de vivre.

Easy. Dick Vitale or better known as Dickie V. And Hotel Vitale of the well-worn fancy dress. Since David was en route to a wedding, he had his suit with him.

We hastily decided to drive and parked the car in the meter. I hastily ran into the restroom where my sister helped me quickly changed. The hotel concierge happily agreed to let us shoot a video—there were a few teams already here

So we shot it. In silence. Because surely we didn’t want the hotel guests to be disturbed by some San Francisco hipsters screaming in…who knows. We took several shots with Chris directing the photography. I played the part of the other woman. David was Mr. Phantom and my sister was Mrs. Phantom. Somehow the Phantoms had a baby that looked like Toad.

Then we dubbed it later in Audacity with the soundtrack. And thanks to David, we have it all brilliantly captured in HD!
