NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The latest ringtone making the rounds may sound like something from MTV’s reality show “Jersey Shore” but it’s actually former Mayor Ed Koch.
“Hey! Welcome to my bridge!” Koch exclaims over a Lady Gaga beat.
The ringtone celebrates Koch’s delight at the city’s decision to rename the 59th Street Bridge in his honor.
The sound byte is extracted from Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s State of the City video.
Koch makes a cameo in the video as Bloomberg journeys through the city by graciously greeting everyone as they cross his bridge, while uttering his signature phrase “How am I doing?”
