While crowds of revelers did party it up at Ground Zero and engage in frat boy patriotism upon hearing news of Osama bin Laden’s death, the same fervor couldn’t be mustered up the following day on the subway by the videographer in this recently uploaded YouTube clip.
He can’t understand why fellow straphangers refuse to join him in a spontaneous chant of U-S-A- and basically blames it on the L train, writing:
I attempted this the first day after news of Osama Bin Laden’s death. FAIL. “Next stop Bedford Ave” should have warned me.
Actually the tired look on their faces was warning enough.
