VIDEO: Sasheer Zamata gives a ‘Girls’ tour
Sasheer Zamata, newest cast member of SNL, also moonlights as a tour guide for “Girls.” Okay, not really, but she plays Madison, an Oberlin grad (a denim theory major, naturally) who gives “Girls” tours in this YouTube video.What does it take to be a “Girls” tour guide? Not much: just a knowledge of the G train and a love of the HBO show.
Cafe Grumpy figures prominently in this satire, with Madison highlighting their $8 drink, “The Hannah.” Madison tells viewers that watching “Sex and the City” is like eating a cupcake because it’s rich and indulgent, and watching “Girls” is having a cup of coffee because you can do it alone … and think about your life.
Madison also shows her tour group (one guy) the trash can where Hannah illegally dumped trash from Cafe Grumpy, and talks about how similar her own life is to the TV show. She once met a man at a Bushwick warehouse party who she thought was her Adam, but it turned out he was just really into heroin. She also tried to take a bath with her friend, who was not as receptive to the idea as Hannah and Jessa are on the show.
