Ben and I had some fun exploring the Summer Night Market in Richmond recently, with videographers Nathan and Ryan capturing our culinary misadventure on camera. The idea was to give people who haven’t enjoyed a trip to an Asian night market a sense of what the experience is like.
We spent a few hours wandering through the crowd, talking with people, and enjoying all sorts of Asian treats at literally dozens of food stalls. But we didn’t really even capture the whole experience, with many more non-food stalls selling all kinds of knickknacks and live performances happening all evening. We just didn’t have time to capture it all!
Anyone familiar with Ben and I (and our sense of humour) knows this video has been edited so it’s safe for parents and children, but if you’d like to see a short sampling of how we really behave (on or off camera) check out the blooper reel.
