Every true fan of a good parody will appreciate what we are about to see in this gallery. Who says pin-up calendars are only for hot chicks and masculine firefighters to be featured? It’s the end of the year and taxi drivers who worked hard all year wanted to have some fun and made a calendar featuring themselves.
The NYC Taxi Drivers Calendar, a comedic take on the traditional pin-up, features some of the city’s best-humored yellow cab drivers. These drivers put a face to one of the most dedicated workforces, driving day and night to transport New Yorkers and NY guests alike.
The parody calendar was created by Philip & Shannon Kirkman of Long Shots with a purpose of raising funds for University Settlement, America’s oldest settlement house (1886), based in New York City’s Lower East Side and serving over 30,000 immigrant and working individuals and families every year with basic services like quality education, housing, recreation and wellness opportunities, and literacy programs. So, good humor and good cause are definitely a winning combination, and so far over $60,000 has been raised.
You can purchase The NYC Taxi Drivers Calendar or some other products featuring “pin-up” stars, like mobile phone cases, blankets and tote bags. Just pick your favorite taxi driver striking a sexy pose and support the noble cause. Check them all out in the gallery below, have fun and visit the webshop.
