“We found out this morning and it’s been awesome,” Hannah Lee, one of the unicorns along with her co-worker Michelle Munera, told the New York Daily News. “[The] crowd is loving us.”
They had not met the sharks, Ashley Lewis and Jennifer Sedgley, before the game, so there was quite a scene behind home plate.
This is all the work of Oliver’s “Last Week Tonight”show, on which Oliver took great umbrage when Yankees chief operating officer Lonn Trost pointed out that fans who paid $1,000 for one of the premium seats wouldn’t be comfortable sitting next to a fan who had bought one of the seats on the secondary market and maybe had “never sat in a premium location.”
Oliver offered the tickets to fans provided that they “dress like you have never sat in a premium location before.”
On Tuesday, two fans showed up dressed as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Kinda makes a person eager to see who shows up Thursday night, the final night of Oliver’s promotion.
