(Scroll down for video) A man known for his unique pranks and for helping the homeless, recorded a video, showing how greedy the New York rich are.
Coby Persin is a young prankster who looks like Zac Efron, according to members of the public.
In his latest prank, Persin walked around New York City in a suit covered with $1 bills. He held a sign that read: “Take what you need.”
The results were shocking. The video was uploaded to YouTube, where it went viral and had more than 1.7 million views in a few days.
One man dressed in a suit walked up to Persin and grabbed a few dollars. When he was asked if he needed the money, the man admitted that he does not. “It is free, who wouldn’t take it,” he said.
A woman in a suit walked up to Persin and grabbed about $19. Persin pointed out that the woman had a Louis Vuitton bag. He asked the woman: “Do you really need the money?” To which she replied: “Yes. I have a nail appointment.”
Persin noticed that the majority of people who took the money had expensive clothes or designer purses.
After about 90 minutes, a homeless man saw the sign and took only $2. The homeless man said that he needed the money for food.
When Persin told him to take more money so that he can buy food for the next day, the homeless man refused, saying that he should save the rest to help others.
Persin was so impressed that he gave the homeless man an additional $60.
