Chick With Ukulele Shows Up Panhandlers On Subway


If there’s anything more annoying than those people who play instruments or dance or beg for money on the subway, it’s when spectators get involved in the act. These black guys look on in confusion while this chick steals the show as if she’s in the recording studio. Love when the guy tries to MC halfway through the song and remind everyone on the train that they are the ones who get the money. The way this probably broke down, hipster chick now has a record deal and the Bongo Brothers are making their way over to the next A Train.
