This Is What Happens When The Jersey Shore Cast Invades New York City

Times Square will never be the same

Jersey Shore alert: Vacay time begins in nine days. But before Deena, Pauly D, JWOWW, Vinny, Ronnie, Snooki and The Situation embark on a trip of a lifetime to The Smush State Miami, the lovable MTV crew invaded New York City for some GTL fun. First up, taking a snapshot in front of a ginormous show billboard in Times Square:

"Went to take a photo with my family and then got photobombed by these idiots!!! #jsfamilyvacation #jerseyshore," D captioned the group image above. And how did Mike describe the situation?

"So Dope OUR NYC Billboard," he added.

Next on the agenda: Hanging with "the homies" (aka the Dolan Twins):

They have ARRIVED:

And yes, it's only appropriate to strike a pose next to your solo shots in the subway station -- matching sunglasses and all.

Give yourself a sweet smooch, Jenni:

Last up, an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America:

Plus, a GTL-inspired game:
