Can you believe how obsessed people are with Pokemon GO? So much, in fact, that people in NYC didn’t even realize they were trying to ‘catch ’em all’ next to one of the biggest pop stars in the world — Justin Bieber. Why? Because they were too glued to their phone screens. Watch the video here!
“This is amazing @johnny lol.@justinbieber and @alfredoflores in nyc looking for Pokemon and no one looks at who is next to them. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂,” Justin’s manager, Scooter Braun, captioned the video below on Instagram July 18. And amazing it is!
Can you imagine being so focused on playing Pokemon GO that you don’t even realize you’re standing next to Justin Bieber? How insane! We knew people were obsessed with this game, but we had no idea things were this crazy.
“Where is it?” you can hear people asking in the video, as they walk really fast through the streets of NYC on the hunt for a particular pokemon. Mind you, it’s also a little past midnight in the video, according to the timestamp in the bottom left corner, so these people were out very late. It seems crazy, but we suppose that’s a good example of sheer determination.
Funny enough, Justin Bieber’s not the only celebrity obsessed with this new app. John Mayer recently blew $100 when buying 1,499 Pokemon Coins. When the app sent him a prompt, asking him if he’d really like to “buy 14,500 PokeCoins for $99.99?” he answered, “YES I DO.”
At the time, one Instagram commenter wrote, “hahahahahhahahahaha good for you.” And another said, “Let’s hang out and play Pokemon in Pittsburgh!”
“The addiction is real,” one person said, and that statement couldn’t be more true. Just look at the video above for proof.
