Move over sexy firemen and cute kittens in distress: the drivers of New York City’s taxi cabs are taking over the pin-up calendar game. These average Joes from around the world are stepping out of their yellow cars and channeling their inner Tyson Beckford. Or not. They are little tongue and cheek. There may not be six-packs, but there’s lots of personality and character.
The cab drivers are in the middle of shooting their 2016 calendars, being the third year they have compiled photos. The profits from the pin-up goes to a good cause: University Settlement, a settlement house “serving over 30,000 immigrant and working individuals and families every year with basic services like quality education, housing, and literacy programs.” They’ve raised about $50,000 so far. Everybody wins! Check them out in action:
