Zabar’s shoppers got a surprising show early Wednesday evening when some rockstars and a celebrity actor showed up at the fish counter. Jonah Hill was at the iconic store on Broadway between 80th and 81st to shoot a video for the band Vampire Weekend, according to Jackie Leitzes.
“People were shopping the whole time!” Jackie told us. “Many folks were totally oblivious and one lady got mad because the PAs were blocking access to ‘her dinner’ in one of the cases! So Upper West Side.”
Jessica Winchell told us that some customers were even picked to be at the counter, along with employees. A crew member told her it would show “a day on the Upper West Side.”
Check out some more photos and a brief video below.
(But let’s be real: leave the lox-slicing to the real Zabar’s pros, like this guy.)
