WATCH: Is this real?Harlem Globetrotter island hops through 11 Jersey shore towns

Well, if this really isn't a green screen trick, then Harlem Globetrotter Handles Franklin really is stronger than the storm. Globetrotters were in Wildwood last week and filmed this public service announcement.

WATCH: Is this real?Harlem Globetrotter island hops through 11 Jersey shore towns

Watch Harlem Globetrotter Handles Franklin spin his way through 11 Jersey shore towns in a "Stronger Than The Storm" spot filmed last week en route to Wildwood. I spotted Ventnor, Margate, Brigantine, Strathmere, Avalon, Atlantic City and, naturally, Wildwood on first viewing. Globetrotter spokesman Eric Nemeth insists the routine was performed in each of the towns he visited on the way to the Wildwoods, where the Globetrotters will perform Aug. 7 to 10th. "No green screens were used - there is still sand in his sneakers," Nemeth said. Nice spot, nice gesture. 

 

About this blog

Inquirer staff writer Amy S. Rosenberg has covered Philly police, city neighborhoods, Ed Rendell as mayor, the Jersey shore, Atlantic City, Miss America and the psychology of Eagles fans. She moved to Ventnor on July 3, 1995, which makes her a local, but not really.

Inquirer Staff Writer Jacqueline L. Urgo has spent every summer of her life at the Jersey Shore, and has lived there year-round for nearly 30 years, even fulfilling one of her bucket list dreams by once living in a house by the sea.

Since 1990, she has covered the waterfront for The Inquirer — from the Atlantic to the Delaware Bay shore — and some of the mainland in between. Along the way, she amassed an encyclopedic knowledge of this tear-it-down-and-build-it-back-up region, delving into the history and the hype of a place with a lot of unexpected stories to tell.
