Good rolls!

Skipito, being in a position to leap directly into action, takes it upon his Deliverator self to enter the neighboring building with an eye towards getting to the roof. That said, he manages to stealthily dart inside and find the stairs, and he proceeds to run towards the roof. Luckily, no one else is in the stairwell.

Meanwhile, the rest of the team wisely works out plans for a distraction. Toru's suggestion that you make some noise seems sound (pun intended), and as Rin can't come up with anything wiser at the moment we'll assume she opts to stay in the van and play with the controls, which is probably in the team's best interest anyway since she's the best at it. We'll leave the specifics up to her.

Toru gets gelled up and downloads some tunes, then scrambles out of the van with Bozuko, who opts to wear a false mustache and glasses while he noisily invites the crowd to find him things to juggle. Right now, the crowd appears stunned, but if you can be convincing enough you might pull this off.

Kitaro, meanwhile, has circled around behind the crowd to prevent anyone from sneaking away. [OOC] There's some old police tape from a nearby crime scene if you really want to literally rope it off, Kitaro. [/OOC]

The element of surprise is in your favor, and the crowd seems to have your attention. Best keep it.

[OOC] How are we doing for time? [/OOC]

Skipito dashes to the roof and scampers across towards the wires, putting himself into the mindset of a squirrel. Then leaps to the nearest utility pole. Crosses the street circus style (that is to say, upright, not on all fours) and springs to the roof of the target building.
Deliverator +2

With any luck, I will not become the distraction.

Bozuko begins with a set of traditional juggling balls, but adapts his arsenal to indulge the whims of the crowd. His juggling attempts to go along with the beat of the music, similar to "Chris Bliss" antics(, albeit with more ninja-style acrobatics. Bozo is going for the true "dazzle" effect.

Expert [+4] Chucking Things
Poor [-2] at Standing Out

With a nu-metal tune blaring, Toru struts his stuff for the crowd: headbanging antics, air guitar, ridiculous rock poses.

Signalling to Wroe to bring up his mic volume, Toru pauses to address the audience.

"Ladies.. and.. gentlemen," he announces, WWF commentator style.

"KNNJ-FM broadcasting live from Zeitgeist bringing you non-stop hit action and the stupefying juggling Bozeeeeeewskiiiiiiiii," waving wildly in Bozuko's direction. "Stick around because in the next hour we'll be giving out $BIG CASH PRIZES$ to lucky punters here at Zeitgeist." [Smooth talker +2]

Kitaro peeps around trying to see if anyone looks like he's missing a burger.
