What would you do to get to an important meeting on time?

Planes, trains, automobiles … paddleboards?

Recently, Jersey City-based comedian Scott Holt opted to go for that last option when running late for a meeting in . Wearing a suit, tie and dress , he took to the water, traversing the Hudson River on a paddleboard.

The unusual commute was captured on video by the quite appropriately named Eunice Rivers.

Fortunately, Holt made it safely across and didn’t run afould of local law enforcement, despite being yelled at by a Water Taxi captain. But alas, if only the meeting went as smoothly as the commute.

"I’m still looking for a manager,” Holt told Channel 4. "I got a free commute and a free shoe shine out of it. … If it’s making people laugh, it’s a good thing."
