    @ akijade: Where do you get that? Not everyone was smiling. This is a video; He showed what he wanted people to see.

    My point is that this is a stupid way to claim "proof New Yorkers aren`t douchebags". Trust me, if I were to go around doing that and recording it, I`m sure I`d get a lot more "WTF`s". People in NY generally do not like to be touched and are uptight.

    Trust me, I`ve been here about 2 years from the West Coast. It`s WAAAAAYYYY different from out there.

    In all fairness the girl at 1:30 didn`t have her hand positioned right for a high five and he was going quite fast so it probably seemed to her more like he just slapped her hand :)

    Yeah, it`s a bit "WTF" if your palm isn`t face-out.

    Oh, and going for a hand by the side? I`d think you were stealing my metrocard too. lol

    This guy is funny!
    I liked when he chased the police car. I laughed.
    And the man at 2:40sih. The metro card one. I laughed alot.
    And then the old man was funny for some reason.
