Man Sets Up Romantic Dinner Date Next To Unsuspecting Woman On Train
| Last updated
Londoners have somehow earned themselves a reputation for being less than cheerful on public transport, with it being more likely that a smiling commuter is struggling with wind than experiencing a happy moment.
But one man, Elvin Mensah, has made it his personal mission to change all that by setting up pranks on the tube and the Overground and filming them. His videos have been doing the rounds on social media for a while now - the fella's been up to all sorts.
One video he posted on his Instagram has caught everyone's attention - an impromptu dinner for two in a carriage on the London Overground.
Hopping on the train, Elvin treated one lucky lady to a romantic dinner date. Taking a seat next to a woman, he whips out a little fold out table and gets to work setting up his dinner.
He takes out a vase with a rose in it, reaching into his bag for a silver service platter. The bemused woman takes a look around to see if anyone else is in on it, or if anyone has any idea what is going on.
He pours them both a nice glass of wine and takes a sip. All the while, the girl looks amused but also unbelievably confused and doesn't really know what to do with herself. Can't blame her really, can you?
Elvin, who has over 44,000 followers on Instagram, told Metro: "I'm a creative individual and, as a comic, I'm always trying to make observations and find ways to create things that will give people a laugh."
People certainly seemed to be loving the train date video on Instagram.
One person simply wrote: "I LOVE THIS," with another saying: "This is comedic brilliance! Kinda sweet too!"
One fan commented on the video: "Funny yet so sweet! I would've toasted with you to a great day! She was blushing so hard lol. Did she ever join you?"
Elvin replied: "She didn't join, but we had a little chat and banter afterwards!"
His other videos are all equally as hilarious. In one recent post he can be seen mixing a huge pot of tea on the tube - even using a kettle.
In another, the caption reads: "When you have to shave for a new job, but forget to do it at home."
Elvin then proceeds to pull out a full size sink on to his lap and starts to shave in the mirror - much to the amusement of passengers around him.
