Getting hit-up for money isn't a rare occurrence in Montreal, especially if you happen to live downtown. After a while you tend to ignore it, that is until someone comes up with a better/more entertaining technique to ask you for change.
Some go with the squeegee approach, others do some busking. But one man has found the perfect technique to stand out.
The video was captured by Jason Tull, the owner of the Muzique Club. The man in question decided to climb up a lamp post, he then dangled down a homemade fishing pole with a cup attached to it so he can go fishing for people's change.
Not gonna lie, I would totally give this man money if I passed by him on the street. Just to thank him for giving me a good laugh.

Montreal's iconic Greenspot Restaurant is selling hot dogs for 74 cents this weekend, September 18 and 19, to celebrate its 74th anniversary.
On Facebook, the Saint-Henri eatery says it's converting its small parking lot on avenue Greene into a picnic area for the event.
And the wiener fun doesn't stop there. Greenspot is having a contest on its Instagram page where followers have the chance to win 74 hot dogs — a prize they can redeem at their discretion.
The restaurant invites followers to share the Instagram post and tag three friends to enter the contest.
Daily two-for-one deals have also been part of the 74th-anniversary celebrations.
Dating back to 1947, Greenspot serves American and Quebec diner classics (including a long list of hearty poutines) amid retro decor (including individual table jukeboxes — they don't work but they're super charming!).
Get the details on the 74th-anniversary hot dog deal below.
