'Where's Waldo?' look-alikes easy to spot in Manhattan

Rain didn't stop "Waldo" look-alikes from gathering in

A real-life game of "Where's Waldo?" came to New York City streets on Thursday.

If you saw an assemblage of men in red-and-white striped shirts and beanies walking around Manhattan, you have spotted the mysterious man but en masse.

For "National Where's Waldo Day" and to celebrate the premiere of DreamWorks' "Where's Waldo?," Universal Kids, a NBCUniversal brand, sent the striped guys out to Washington Square Park around 9 a.m., with further stops planned at the High Line, Central Park, Battery Park City and Hudson Yards.

Unlike the real Waldo, the impersonators are ready to have their photos taken.

The new show premieres on Universal Kids on Saturday at 10 a.m.
