(Newser) – After weeks of hype, the wait is over: Levi Johnston is in New York to shoot his Playgirl spread. And who should he run into upon his arrival? America's other favorite ex-beau and fellow media darling Jon Gosselin. Johnston was in Times Square taping an outdoor Insider interview; Gosselin was filming promotional TV spots. View the odd photo the two posed for in the New York Daily News.

In related news, New York takes a look at how Playgirl landed Johnston. The Alaskan babydaddy thought manager Tank Jones was kidding about the mag's offer, but Jones goaded him into accepting, saying, “You gotta have some johnson” to take the job. A Playgirl exec says, “I really thought we were just going to get ass, which I was OK with, because it’s really kind of a political statement.”
