Only in New York: Amy Poehler from Saturday Night Live fame (if you don’t know one of the funniest people in the world, then for Christmas I hope you get a TV to watch her) and Billy Eichner from Funny or Die recruits random people on the streets of NYC to sing Christmas carols. Too bad that no one really performs their request in its entirety.
For those who don’t live in New York City, I have to say this is the exception of New York. While you do have people that seemingly seems to have a job as professional “bah, humbug!”ers in the city streets, there are many other people that like to joke around, have fun and even enjoy helping people (and believe me, being asked for help is common considering the amount to tourists that come through New York). It’s all a part of being a New Yorker: cold on the outside, but warm on the inside. Ask New Yorkers for things nicely and you shall receive.
