Justin Bieber Runs Into Traffic Chasing Pokémon, Just Like Everyone Else

I forgive him, but no one else

As someone who lives in New York City and does not play Pokémon Go, I do not exactly get why people need to stop in the middle of the sidewalk, but I know they do. One person I would not mind having to change my course for because he is focused on catching a Squirtle or whatever? Justin Bieber.

Last night, when he wasn't impersonating Harry Potter, Justin was hanging out in NYC, when a Gyarados — a rare Pokémon, apparently, IDK — popped up. Bieber joined in with everyone else on the street, darting in front of cars, loitering in front of the Apple store, etc., to catch it.

It doesn't seem like he triumphed over the other players, so, uh, here's a tip for JB: There are, like, so many rare Pokémon near me at all time. Weird, right??! DM me for deets 😉.
