Meet the New Yorker Who’s Stealing High Fives from People as They Hail Cabs (VIDEO)

Hailing a cab in New York can be daunting. Every day, thousands of New Yorkers are left hanging off the curb with their arms up in the air just waiting for a cab to screech to a halt.

But when the prospects for catching a cab seem hopeless, this guy comes along to brighten their day.

Meir Kalmanson of AMK Productions decided to run by and give them all high fives to bring a little cheer to the gloom of trying to get a lift in the city.

We thought stealing high fives from people was forbidden, only reserved for for celebratory purposes, but after watching this video, we’re feeling the urge to use this gesture more frequently.
