History puts alligators in NYC sewers -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

Gators1

Now this is how you promote a reality show!

To market season 2 of the series Swamp People, History is putting alligators in New York City sewers. Playing off the urban legend, the network’s marketing team is placing very realistic looking model alligators crawling out of the city’s manholes in various locations. How would you react if you saw this when walking to work? Pic:

Swamp People chronicles a group of Southern Louisiana residents, some of whom make their living hunting ‘gators. The show returns to History on Thursday.

    Cute! It’s too bad they hunt them though. :/

    • LOL

      When the Bronx Zoo cobra meets these things, it’ll be war.

    • Sunny

      You wouldn’t think that if one had you in a death roll.

    • BillyFLA

      Can’t wait until middle aged executives start having heart attacks and the lawsuits start!

      boring

  • mags

    ICK!

  • hermione

    That would probably startle the sh*t out of me if I saw that on the way to work.

  • alex

    I would freak the hell out and RUN. This makes me not want to watch the show.. this is new york.. don’t mess with us like that.

  • Mac

    It’s clever i will give them that, but i can already see someone tripping on it/sueing them.

    • Shasha

      My thoughts exactly

  • Pam

    I would probably run in the opposite direction screaming like a mad-woman.

  • Karen

    I’m sorry, just how exactly is this history again?

    • ltchy

      History, as in, The Channel… l was wondering the same thing until l went back and caught it.

      • MelindaB

        I’m sure that what Karen meant was, “Why is The *History* Channel airing a reality show about alligator hunters?” If channels are going to abandon their initial programming niches, then I wish they’d just change their names.

      Historically, the alligator trade has provided a living for people on the Bayou for 300 years. Maybe it’s depicting what hard work and self-sufficiency looks like, versus the latter-day culture of living off working people, like millions of lazy city ‘folk’ do every day. History.

  • Mae

    this would scare the crap out of me.

  • EMF

    So that’s what those barracades were for. I just saw them about an hour ago in the Village. They had “Swamp People” on them and I couldn’t figure out what the heck was going on.

  • Kay

    If you grow up in Florida, this is pretty much just a Tuesday morning.

    • Vivi

      Kay – haha I agree completely! A ho-hum, run-of-the-mill sight.

  • Kelly A

    Probably try to figure out how to make it Easter dinner! Loving louisiana

  • Vivi

    That’s hilarious!

    • Edy

      I like the old lace idea, but the pale color washes her out. Her fiugre is ah-mazing and this style dress really shows it off, and it does have that higher taste of style appropriate for the globes, but the dress needed more lace to it to make it hawt. Sorry Christina, just missed it on this one.

  • JLC

    Darn it! You’ve spoiled the next SyFy Debbie Gibson epic!

  • Andrew

    I’d say “good, at least I won’t be going to work anymore”

  • MARINA

    ANOTHER DISTRACTION ON THE WAY TO WORK WHO DO WE SUE IF YOU TRIP AND FALL TRYING TO GET AWAY? THE CITY GAVE ITS OKAY FOR THIS? HOW IDIOTIC.
