Topless Guy Livens Up Cosmo Brainstorming Session

It’s never dull at Cosmopolitan. Exhibit Z: this afternoon’s cosmo.com editorial brainstorming session, live-streamed beginning at 4 p.m. ET.

Joining six staff members – a few minutes late – was actor-model-entrepreneur CJ Richards. The Super Bowl-focused discussion had already begun, but attention soon shifted to Richards, who began by reminding that today was the coldest day in New York in many years. He then whipped off his jacket, scarf and soon, the rest of the clothing covering his top half (sweater, and maybe T-shirt underneath). From that point on, Richards sat and participated – topless.

The stated excuse for the strip-down was that it was “really hot” in the Cosmopolitan boardroom. Thanks to Richards’ move, the #CosmoLive hashtagged chat evidently also heated up.

[And for those who missed but are still interested in flash-forwarding to the sweater drop, it starts around the five-and-a-half-minute mark.]
