Mr. and Mrs. Bun Wave As They Are Driven Through Old Torrance - 2020

Mr. & Mrs. Bun did "the wave" through Old Torrance on Easter morning, 2020. Neighbors - young & old - were out on their porches and front lawns waving and videoing. Mr. and Mrs. Bun delivered drive-by Easter wishes & bunny kisses to the doorsteps of many, at a distance. Shout-out to the Buns' chauffeur, Russ, and his cool 1941 Ford Bunnymobile and to Judy, Steve & Claribelle for following behind, honking to announce the arrival of the long-eared Mr. Bun and Mrs. Bun. See the video of the Bun brigade following Mr. & Mrs. Bun around town as they did the wave with friends and fans in Old Torrance, and see the aerial view YouTube video of the Bunny brigade following Mr. & Mrs. Bun around town as they did the wave with friends and fans in Old Torrance.
