I was at carnival in Trinidad last year. My friends and I were - like usual - half naked and dancing viciously in the middle of the road, covered in paint. Another friend of mine was a cameraman for the event, so he saw us dancing and came close to zoom in on us and film the debauchery
. Since my friends and I were already under our rum, we started to show-off for the camera, all types of splits and whines and just going on with PURE antics - the cameraman recording all of it. It was crazy
Later that evening, we go back to my friend's grandma's house (we stayed by her family who are DEVOUTLY Christian), and wouldn't you know that the reel of us dancing was looped on the news -- with my friend's entire Christian family gathered in the living room watching
. I had sobered up quite a bit by this time, so I was able to see with a clear conscience just how bad it was. The room was so quiet that you could hear a pin drop, and everyone looked uncomfortable having just witnessed myself and my friends gyrate on each other in front of the entire country.
Her grandma didn't recognize us at first and she whispered 'Sodom and Gomorrah' to herself, but when the camera panned in and caught our faces, she just scurried away into the kitchen
The worst part is that they KEPT looping it on the news, and the next day it ran in the newspaper
