Dancing bagel sells more than bagels

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Motorists driving in the 7 a.m. hour along Beatties Ford Road at Mt. Holly-Huntersville, have a treat better than coffee.

Standing on the corner every morning from 7-9 a.m. is Anthony Cross.

Anthony wears a huge, home-sewn bagel across his body and earphones in his ears. With the almost 24,000 songs on his I-Pod, he never stops dancing. He never stops smiling and waving the peace sign at whoever will look at him.

Anthony wears the bagel as advertisement for Bennington's Bagels in the Bloom shopping center. His boss says many customers stop in just because of the dancing bagel.

Some even stop in just to say they saw Anthony, and he made them smile.

Every car that passes doesn't wave back. Some people are too busy fixing their hair or typing on their cell phones. Anthony doesn't mind though, he says that's their loss if they don't take the time to notice the life passing by their car windows.
