Watch: New Yorkers Think This Statue Is A Real Person (Is It?)

So, now it's time to play the "Is This A Human Or Is This A Statue" game. What's that you say? Super easy? Guess again, friends. 'Cuz if you're anything like this gaggle of unsuspecting New Yorkers and tourists, you, too, can get tricked into believing a very inanimate statue is a very real person. Watch as this group begins to donate money to a "panhandling" statue, all thanks to the clever, clever chief creative officer of BuzzFeed, Jeff Greenspan. What do you think: Would you get tricked?
