Valentine's Day should be for everyone. Even if you're still looking for Mr or Mrs Right, it's a time to sit back and enjoy a little self-love...just maybe not on a train at 5am, as this video shows.
The clip comes from earlier in the week, when a commuter film a bloke on the New York City subway entranced in his own little world and his new purchase.
Well, that's one way of putting it. Another would be that it shows a bloke in a fur coat unleashing what appears to be a huge dildo from his backpack and inspecting it on the train. The sex toy is over a foot long and, well, vaguely terrifying.
"I was on my way to work on the subway and it was about 5am," said Cameron Turner, who took the video.
"This man gets on the train and sits down to pull out this giant sex toy and opens it to show it off and is filled with such excitement.
"I filmed this because at first I couldn't believe this was happening and so i pulled out my phone to record it. I'm so pleased I did. I can't believe what I caught on camera.
"I was first confused and then not surprised that something like this would happen in NYC. I have never experienced this before!"
The video has racked up close to a million shares on Instagram, with many suggesting that the man may have purchased the implement as a present for a significant other this Valentine's Day.
"He seems very happy with it and is really eager to get it out of the plastic packaging - he doesn't waste any time from the moment he sits down to getting it out," said Cameron.
"The way he looks over it and wafts it around really made me laugh. It's like he's showing it off.
"He must know what it is. I have no idea what else you could think it is. It has two heads and is veined so it's pretty clear what it is. Some people suggested it could be a Valentine's Day gift. If that's the case, someone is in for a shock."
