There's something a little freaky going on around Opening Ceremony. Every now and then we feel like we're seeing double (and not just on a Saturday night), or start a sentence with one associate only to have it finished by another person completely. There's an epidemic going on...a TWIN epidemic! So we thought we'd spread the fun with everyone and introduce them, two by two....
Set one is the Barr brothers. You may recognize Stephen from the door here at OCNY and any OC event. And Andrew? Well, he's probably carded you or maybe even kicked you out of Lit in the East Village, where he doors a couple nights a week. While keeping situations safe, these guys also head up Somebody Wears It
, a streetwear T-Shirt line giving every sneaker freaker the perfect t-shirt to match their kicks.
Wow, you’re a twin! Tell me EVERYTHING…
Your twin's name:
Where you live:
Long Island, NY
Where he/she lives:
How many minutes were you guys born apart?
Do twins run in your family? Describe the twin family tree…
We don’t know of any, if they do they’re not as cool as us!
Describe the cutest or most humiliating matching outfits your mom dressed you in an as kids.
A sailor outfit.
Have you guys ever had any freaky twin telepathic experiences?
Andrew: One day i ordered ribs and later i found out he ordered ribs the same day!
If life were a Disney movie, which one of you would be the evil twin? You both need to agree on this….
Stephen: Andrew definitely, cause he’s grumpy and scrooge-like.
Andrew: Yeah they call me McScroogiest.
Best thing about being a twin?
Andrew: The Jolly bond.
Stephen: Sharing clothes.
Most annoying thing about having a twin?
Andrew: Individuality and living up to each other.
Stephen: Our mom always says stuff like “Why can’t you be cleaner, or why can’t you be better with money like Andrew...”
Ever had any twin envy? Both can answer this…
Andrew: Once he sees my new apartment he’ll have it, or maybe it was when I got my BMW...
Did you two ever play any pranks on people growing up? Tell me more…
Stephen: I was always better at math, so i took a math test for Andrew one day, and failed it!
Andrew [to Stephen]: Remember when I was making out with this girl and left the room and then you came in and started making out with her?
Stephen: Oh yeah, but i don’t really think she cared about it though... Was that the girl from across the street?
Andrew [chuckling]: Yeah!
Whats the easiest way to tell you two apart? (Apart from your gleaming, highly individual personalities!)
Andrew: I have a five o’clock shadow...
Stephen: ...and i’m rockin’ the chin straps.
Andrew: One smiles and gives you a high-five...
Stephen: ...and the other just nods...if that.
Finally and most importantly, who is better looking?
Andrew [points to himself]: Debonair bear.
Stephen [laughs]: Whatever....
Andrew: I’m engaged!
Stephen: Ladies love cool Stephen.
