What would you do if someone approached you on the street and offered you a thousand bucks?
It seems like a pretty obvious answer: take it and run!
But that didn't quite happen on the Today Show on Tuesday morning when weatherman Stevie Jacobs approached a young woman with a wad of green notes as part of the morning show's 'Random Acts of Cash' segment.
The woman who Jacobs targeted did the exact opposite of what you'd think -- she appeared anxious and confused and waved away the weatherman and the stack of cash.
"It's real money!" Jacobs called after her.
A man watching the encounter from a bench close-by quickly relieved Jacobs and snagged the $1,000 up for grabs.
"That is a first, I have never seen that before," Jacobs said.
But some people suggested there may have been a language barrier between Jacobs and the young woman.
Suggest a correction
maybe she felt uncomfortable with $randomman offering her money and a camera in her face. https://t.co/jYyaBdfPsg— Fenrir (@semibogan) April 5, 2016
