When Mickey Boardman Met Drew Elliott
The Paper Magazine “partners in crime” sing us some show tunes.
In honor of the fact that we can never get enough of love, and even more so, of excellent chemistry, we're launching a brand new video series. A cross between the Newlywed Game and indulging in a good old-fashioned love story; here you'll meet some of our favotire duos and find out how they met and how much they actually know each other. This is a team sport: from husband-and-wife and husband-and-husband, to twin sisters, best friends, and longtime colleagues. And trust us when we say that they all have a lot of personality to spare. Harry and Sally have got nothing on these meet-cutes.
Cut to us at 9 in the morning at Drew Elliott’s (better known as Drewpsie) memento-and-art filled apartment. The cameras are on and he and Mickey Boardman are singing us songs from Gypsy at full tilt. If there’s anything that can wake us up and get us excited for the day better than an XXL coffee and avocado toast, this is it. And that’s not all, Elliott, Paper’s Chief Creative Officer, and Mickey Boardman, Editorial Director at the same magazine, put on quite the show, including lots of Boardman-starring hijinks for Elliott’s infamous Snapchat feed (if you’re not already following, may we suggest you do so now? @drewpsie, obviously). And when we got to playing our version of the Newlywed Game, we were surprised to find that they actually seem to know each other better than most married couples (does your boyfriend know what your perfect night out is?!). Click play and prepare to be entertained.
