Video: Patriotism Fail

I’m sure that many of us had mixed emotions when we learned on Sunday night that Osama bin Laden had been killed. Joy, sorrow, contemplative-ness, rage, euphoria, et cetera.

But this guy, well, this guy did not have mixed emotions. He had very clear emotions — emotions that he wanted to share with a subway car full of New Yorkers. It’s a pretty hilarious fail, a moment that reminds us all that there may indeed be no occasion that can cause New York City subway riders to become joiners.

    Not true! I was on an A train downtown from Washington Heights on Election Night and the whole car started screaming “O-BAM-A! O-BAM-A!”, and as I walked down through Times Square, car horns honked and people leaned out of their windows to scream “YES WE CAN! OBAMA!”. So it’s not that New Yorkers hate to join, we just pick our causes carefully.
