Dispatches from the first No Creep Crawl
Not many people realize that our upcoming No Creep Crawl isn’t the first. We organized the first No Creep Crawl last year, just after forming Comedy Estonia. We don’t talk about that first No Creep Crawl very often: while no one was (seriously) injured, the whole ordeal is somewhat of a bad memory for everyone who participated.
But since we’re only a few days from the sequel,
I have decided to release some never-before-seen video footage of the original No Creep Crawl. I wasn’t able to capture everything on video, but I did film a few clips from throughout the night that highlight some of the mistakes we made last year.
19:45 – Pre-gaming
Not many people paced themselves for a full night of pub crawling last year. This is a video of Bubba, a comedian that used to perform with us before being deported from Estonia for an incident that happened on a different pub crawl.
20:13 – Drink Bar
As we’re doing this year, we started the No Creep Crawl at Drink Bar last year. This was our first mistake: I didn’t realize that a lot of people would be at Drink Bar that night to watch some weird game involving a lot of players chasing a round ball and spontaneously falling to the ground and pretending to be hurt (I think it’s called Sucker). Anyway, a fan of one team said something about the other team, and a debate over the merits of each team took place in the finest British tradition.
20:48 – Vali Bar
The second stop on last year’s No Creep Crawl was Vali Bar. We didn’t stay very long: a large group of “regulars” made it clear that we weren’t welcome there. To be honest, being around that many old people was really uncomfortable.
21:19 – St. Patrick’s Pub
The night started getting weird in St. Patrick’s Pub when we ran into a British stag party. I’m used to seeing stag partiers harass women, so it was odd that this stag party was more interested in getting the groom-to-be’s clothes off.
I guess none of those people had watched this video prior to coming to Tallinn.
22: 34 – Nimeta
As the night wore on, some of our pub crawlers began to get a little tipsy. Oleg, a pub crawler who was visiting Estonia from Moscow, was one of them. Although I didn’t get any footage of Oleg that night, he sent me a video of himself at work the next day.
A few of our American pub crawlers left the party at Nimeta: specifically, one woman who was traumatized by a confrontation with some birds.
23: 08 – Hell Hunt
Our next stop was Hell Hunt, which was quite packed by 23:00. Hell Hunt attracts an international crowd, which I enjoy when I’m feeling homesick and want to interact with some of my countrymen. I took a few minutes to speak to other Americans at Hell Hunt.
A few British guys on our pub crawl decided to start socializing with members of the opposite sex. Unfortunately, their approach wasn’t very successful.
00:18 – Club Hollywood
Along with the self control of a few British men, the No Creep Crawl ended at Club Hollywood that night. Having never been to Club Hollywood before, I guess I didn’t understand exactly what kind of a club it is. Needless to say, the No Creep Crawl ends at Balou this year.
