Hungry people are NOT to be trifled with. Hungry New Yorkers, especially -- as this absolutely hilarious video proves.
The premise is brilllliant: Anderson Cooper hired an actor to cut some of the super long lines at NYC's most popular food trucks and set up hidden cameras to catch people's reactions.
Famished, displaced, indignant people who probably needed to be back at work 10 minutes ago, I might add.
Not surprisingly, they were not all that pleased with the actor.
Responses ranged from "Seriously?" to "That's not cool, man" to "You're an a**hole!"
But nobody decked the guy, which I thought was fairly impressive ... possibly because his particularly brand of "rude" was really funny.
"Sorry, I'm just sooo hungry," he explained to one group. When they shot back with "we are, too," he nodded sympathetically. "I know," he said, as if their hunger, while problematic, was completely unrelated to his own hunger (more problematic).
Gotta give this actor credit for being crazy brave! Hell hath no fury like a New Yorker forced to wait for a hot dog.
What would you do if somebody cut in front of you while you were waiting in line at a food truck?
