At first, this video will probably tug on your heartstrings, and you may very well be filled with a hollow sadness, for the subway rider seen here does not seem to have all her wits about her (the videographer speculates she's on heroin), and she's dressed like Charlie Brown. But then, after about 20 seconds, the scene shifts from sad to mesmerizing and then something else entirely—an ode to the resiliency of the human spirit. All those fights about whether eating on the subway should be illegal become moot—this video is, above all things, a celebration of the five second rule. (And at least she wasn't licking her shoe.)
