‘No Impact Man’ Hits the Mainstream


Colin Beavan, a.k.a. No Impact Man, was featured on ABC’s "Good Morning America" last week. As shown in the video, GMA followed Beavan and his family wheeling their "SUV" trike around Manhattan, and also brought him into the studio for a light interview. Though the segment has the requisite "News of the Weird" feel, it casts the Beavans’ project as something to be admired, rather than another granola-fueled urban oddity.
