Poor Jennifer Aniston! In New York right now it is far too cold to go nude outside, which left the actress few options to promote her film Marley & Me last night.

Fortunately, her beau John Mayer had an idea: walk several blocks to a restaurant instead of taking a cab, engage in a little PDA, and chat with his best friends (TMZ cameramen). Us has the scoop, and TMZ has the video:

Aniston, 39, smiled as she snuggled up to Mayer, 31, as he greeted photographers. The two — who wore matching black jackets and jeans — then dashed into La Esquina, where Kelly Ripa was also dining with husband Mark Consuelos.

While walking, he plugged her new movie Marley & Me.

"I'm happy to report the movie is completely in focus," he told photographers as Aniston laughed. "I want everyone to know that."

Then he joked that he and Aniston were walking all the way to Harlem.

"90 more blocks, guys!" he teased photographers. "90 more blocks!"

Of course, giving the paparazzi some prime, saleable video is an unconventional technique to ensure they stop bothering you in the future, on par with leaving a dish of milk out for a stray cat, then complaining when it paws your screen door at night. However, we'll defer to Mayer's expertise on this; after all, he's the one who thinks thoughts (typically on the level of "What paparazzi service should I tip off that Jen and I are headed to La Esquina?").
