Have you ever wondered what you’d do if you won the lottery? Well one guy knows exactly what he’d do.

However one reporter got a more frank answer than she was expecting when she asked one man what he’d do with the money if he won.

He decided to cut straight to the point, telling the reporter: “Bunch of hookers and cocaine,” much to the newscaster’s surprise, who nervously giggles at the man’s answer.

At least he’s honest…
