Generally speaking, we would say please PLEASE leave commuters alone. They're already suffering the indignity of being elbowed by teenagers in the throes of sweaty, bubblegum and Axe-scented passion. After a day of soul-crushing work most people just want to be left alone. But this prank on the 4 train might actually have made some people's days a little better.

What starts out as a lone woman panhandling quickly escalates into a whole train full of people asking for change in this escapade coordinated by comedian Gary Lee Mahmoud. Good work, pal -- you managed to make people on the train laugh. Not an easy task.
