Human statues are usually pretty good at staying extremely still for a long time – it’s their job, after all.
But one surefire way to get their attention is to try and steal money out of their donations basket.
This guy finds that out the hard way in New York’s Times Square – as he steals a fistful of dollars from the basket he seems genuinely surprised to learn that the guy isn’t actually a statue, when he receives a brutal kick to the face.
This Instagram user captured the whole incident:
What did he expect to happen? He’s not made of rock.
