Video Of The Day: Subway Panhandler, With A Twist

Ride the subway system in many large cities, and you’ll probably encounter a panhandler or two. Whether they’re dancing, playing a guitar or flat-out begging, it can seem that everywhere you turn, someone is asking for your spare change.

Riders on this Philadelphia train thought they were in for more of “the usual” — until this panhandler opened his mouth. Check out the video and tell us, what’s the wildest thing you’ve seen on a subway train?
