When the news of Osama bin Laden's death broke Sunday, there was an inspiring video making the rounds showing NYC subway riders chanting "U-S-A!" That was Sunday. Fastforward two days, and New Yorkers in one subway care aren't having anything to do with the patriotic chant.
The Daily What has posted a video showing a man trying to inspire his fellow riders by asking them to join in the chant. They don't. Instead the roll their eyes, and flip him the middle finger:
"Bin Laden's dead, anybody give a sh**?" the clearly angry man asks after everyone refuses his gesture. "You're welcome to the military and everyone who protects you while you sleep."
You can watch it below [Content warning for language and those middle fingers]:
The man who posted the video included this in his description:
Attempted the first "post-Osama" day. Look, I'm fully aware of how stupid I look and sound. I obviously went about this the wrong way, though I still don't see anything wrong with a little community patriotism particularly on such a day. I'm not really the guy I sound like on the video, I guess I was over-enthused.
