Our favorite moment of the beach video is when the person on the other end of the line of one of his unwitting subjects knows all about cellphone crashing and gets excited to to talk to Benson. “I wish I could shake your hand,” she exclaims. All-in-all, most of his subjects are exceedingly good sports.
