"Jumping-Into-the-Frame Man in Ginza on March 9th, 1991"

Stretching up into someone's picture instead of ducking down to get out of it - this is something that happened to me often enough in 1991 Tokyo, that I suspect some television comedy show introduced it to people's imaginations and suddenly people were doing it all over the city.  It's kind of hard to imagine that a large number of people would independently get it into their heads to do this.  I didn't really care, but just found it odd that so many would suddenly be doing the same maneuver.

This was taken on the main road through Ginza, which was (still is?) shut off to fire-breathing machinery on weekends so people can freely walk around without the inconvenience, noise, and noxious gasses of motor vehicles getting in the way.
