Making a million dollars is apparently far easier than any of us ever thought. Rather than go out in the real world and toil away for 'the man,' you can just hop on YouTube and ask for the money. Don't roll your eyes, it actually works.
So maybe it won't work for everyone, but it did for Craig Rowin, a 27-year-old comedian who posted a video on YouTube imploring millionaires to give him a million bucks for no particular reason. He even suggested some potential donors, such as Stephen Spielberg and Lady Gaga.
According to ABC News, Rowin's plea for cash worked.
"Hi Craig, Benjamin, I was hoping to catch you in person," a caller told Rowin. "I want to talk about how to make you a millionaire."
Some have accused Rowin of shenanigans and say this all amounts to nothing more than a publicity stunt, but Rowin insists that's not the case.
"I have my doubts," said Brian Sercus, who previously performed in a college improv group with Rowin. "But I have never known him to be a practical joker, just a funny guy, not a guy who would go to such lengths to pull off a prank."
