Stranger #1 (David AKA Raou Raou)

My friends and I were filming a promotional video in Pasadena, CA. We crossed the street seeking a location where we could re-do our video since we got kicked out from the last location...


Once we had crossed the street, we see David (Raou Raou) walking down the sidewalk with his bike. We heard him talking to random strangers asking if "they wanted to hear something dope". They denied. He walked up to us, and asked, "Hey you guys wanna hear something dope!?" We said yes out of curiosity...."It sounds like the Beastie Boys but west coast style". We heard what he had, and at the end of his act, threw a frisbee across the street and almost hit someone! He ran after it, apologized to the man, and came back. I kindly asked him if I could snap a couple shots and agreed! This was by far my favorite one!


He was an extremely interesting character! I'm glad he is the first in my 100 strangers project!
