MTV's Bridge & Tunnel: Behold The Tremendously Entertaining Trailer for the Original Jersey Shore

Bridge & Tunnel's star sisters: Brianna and Gabriella DeBartoli

In this week's Village Voice cover story, we introduce you to Gabriella and Brianna DeBartoli, the would-be Staten Island stars of Bridge & Tunnel, a 12-episode reality show that MTV spent millions shooting, but inexplicably shelved at the eleventh hour. After B&T survived three years in development, the only extant clip is the show's super-trailer, a deliberately sensational last-ditch attempt to distract executive attention away from the cuca-flashing phenomenon Jersey Shore. The video didn't rescue Bridge & Tunnel from broadcast oblivion, but it did present a far more entertaining version of young outer-borough living than, say, Lifetime's Brighton Beach version of Jersey Shore, Russian Dolls.

See male cast members swing their fists, vomit, and double-team suck on a beer-funnel shaped like breasts. Watch their female counterparts say "youse" instead of "you," compliment one another's cleavage, and toss drinks in peoples' faces. Observe and wonder why on Earth the Viacom network ever abandoned this goldmine.

Please no. Staten Island gets enough shit as it is for the small, loud minority of people that are like this.

I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, GrabPenny.com
