Lloyd Doblers in NY

Say Anything used to be one of my favorite movies back in the day. Recently rewatching it proved it to be quite boring. However, I still do really like Lloyd Dobler, the main character who served as a role model for me. This film was also a big push for me to get into Peter Gabriel's music.

Group of Lloyd Doblers Take Over NYC For ‘Say Anything’ Release

Empress Eve | |

A group of trenchcoat-wearing, boombox-lifting Lloyd Dobler look-a-likes took to the streets of New York City today in celebration of the 20th anniversary release of Say Anything on DVD andBlu-ray.

The Doblers, which called themselves “Mobler,” began their adventure at Penn Station and make their way around the city to Washington Square Park and Union Square before ending their journey at Times Square, where the indie band Lloyd Dobler Effect put on an acoustic performance of Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes.”

Check out video from the event here below, and a shot of “Mobler” here at right.

For those of you unfamiliar with Say Anything, it’s the 1989 directorial debut from Cameron Crowe that starred a young John Cusack as Lloyd Dobler, an underachieving high school student in Seattle who falls in love with the beautiful, studious class valedictorian Diane (Ione Skye). The teenagers begin a relationship, but not without complications. In a pivotal moment in the film, a trenchcoat-wearing Lloyd tries to win back Diane by standing outside her window holding up a boombox playing “In Your Eyes.”
