White Guy Surprises People in NYC Chinatown with Perfect Chinese

I did a social experiment / prank where as a white guy I walked up to various Chinese vendors in NYC’s Chinatown, began speaking to them in English, and then switched over mid-conversation to Chinese (a combination of Mandarin and Cantonese, Mandarin I’m quite fluent in, Cantonese less so). We filmed their genuine reactions!
This is an idea I’ve been wanting to film for a while, inspired by a combination of videos by JAYKEEOUT and laoshu505000. It didn’t come out quite as I planned, my camera’s autofocus is terrible in bright light, but hopefully this can be the first of a series if you guys like it!

The Internet is awash with these so-called 'pranks'. A prank is a practical joke or a mischevious act. This video doesn't qualify as either. Instead he's just an attention whore, who likes to demonstrate that he is smart because he speaks Chinese. :|

Maybe just maybe there is someone out there with a less negative attitude who likes the video and gets inspired to learn chinese or any other language, even if it is just to impress people because he is jealous he never could be a liked attention whore before.

I seriously ask myself if there is anything in life you genuinely enjoy, fox.

#2 I'll assume you are in fact asking me, not yourself, in which case the answer is yes, I enjoy baiting you, and knitting. :)

I enjoyed the vid because of the way the Chinese were truly amazed by something they do not see very often ( if at all ) which is an average white guy speaking their language while shopping in their markets. They really enjoyed it and it showed.
