Bizarre Subway Moments Caught On Camera!



Poppy Hat

Have you seen the latest subway trend? It turns out that wrapping your hat in bubble wrap is the latest fashion statement on the Underground. That’s according to this lady, who wears what she wants and she doesn’t care who sees it.

We can’t imagine why she decided to wrap her hat in this poppy material – maybe she wanted to waterproof it? That doesn’t make much sense either, considering the subway is underground! Either way, we think she looks fabulous.

Service Pets Allowed

We’re pretty used to seeing service dogs on the subway – but what about service dinosaurs? It looks like new rules and regulations have been updated to allow these prehistoric creatures onto the subways to help nervous passengers.

Actually, if you look closely you’ll see that these are, in fact, humans dressed as dinosaurs. We reckon they probably dressed up for a bachelor night or hosting a football game. Either way, we love their spirit! Let’s hope everything went to plan.


Pimps Need Transport, Too

Sure, pimps make a lot of money. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be frugal every now and then. Here, we can see a pimp riding home after a long day of collecting money from men. It looks like he didn’t have enough change to order a cab!

We love the bold move of wearing all red on the subway – whatever time of day it might be. Who knows, he might dedicate each day of the week to a different color. We’re surprised he sees any color other than green! 

I Am Groot

Look, a real guardian of the galaxy! Only kidding, this isn’t actually Groot from 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but we were almost fooled for a few minutes. Here we can see what we can only assume is a Halloween costume. Either that or she’s a real-life Poison Ivy!

What we find funniest about this is how she’s seemingly dressed completely normal from the head down – almost as if she doesn’t realize she’s half a tree. Hilarious!


Paint Me Like One Of Your Passengers

Sometimes, real life mimics art. We can see that ‘beautifully’ with this drunk man who is unaware he is recreating one of the most amazing pieces of art. Whereas one took years of painstaking accuracy and care, the other was from laziness and carelessness. Which asks the question: what’s even the difference?

There are plenty of times we see art and life mimic each other and this is a wonderful example of their merging. 

Head’s Away! 

This is more likely to happen in the English London Underground, since their tubes are smaller and narrower. Still, we accept that it can happen anyway – case in point! This poor guy got his hair trapped in the door and had to travel like this for an entire stop.

It must have been a maximum time of only a few minutes, but it’s still pretty embarrassing and could have been rather uncomfortable. Thankfully a friend was there to snap this photo. 


Bubble Boy

This guy went the extra mile to make sure he wouldn’t get sick on his morning commute. He made his own helmet to guarantee he didn’t have to accidentally consume germs or any other nasty bacteria.

Do you think he’s sick or just paranoid? We don’t think he looks sick, so maybe he wanted to be extra careful. It might have been during the Ebola crisis in 2014 – who knows? Hopefully, he survived and is alive and well today. 

Mama Mia! 

So you’ve taken a pizza to go and you’re about to get home and feed it to your family. The last thing you would want to happen is that it falls on the subway floor – which we can all agree is pretty dirty. Well, that’s exactly what happened to this poor lady.

Let’s be honest here: this lady was probably a bit drunk and fell asleep after a long night out with friends. Either way, can you imagine how upset she must have been once she woke up! We feel bad for all the other passengers, too.


We Laugh At Your Rules! 

A few years ago, New York City’s MTA made a rule that stated that all dogs, unless service dogs, must be placed in a bag during transit. Well, you can imagine the degree of frustration for the owners for some of the bigger dogs!

New Yorkers have always been known for their ingenuity, and many of its citizens found hilarious ways around the law. Some included getting bigger bags, whereas others included literally cutting the bottoms out of the base of the bag and having the dog wear it like a dress!


Just look at this gorgeous diva! This puppy has got a whole New York subway carriage to himself. We’re wondering why no one is rushing to sit next to the little guy. Is there a chance his bite is worse than his bark?

Big things often come in small packages and this could be an example of how this puppy may look cute at times, but it doesn’t mean you can mess with him! Trust us. You don’t want to cross this little guy. 


Whatever It Takes

Sometimes, the last thing you want is to talk to someone on the subway. Well, this passenger did whatever it took to make sure that no one sparked up a conversation with her. Just look at her bag: ‘This bag contains a gun, a bomb, a very large knife, and loads of drugs.’

Today, that joke wouldn’t be so funny considering the tragic events that are taking place around the world. Hopefully, people saw the humor in it and no one was concerned she would take out the knife or gun! The drugs would have been ok. 

Battle of the Ages

How do you think this happened? Two leaders from two universes find themselves in the same carriage on the subway! Passengers had better watch out – they don’t want to get caught in the middle of their drama.

We reckon this was on the way to or from a ComicCon event – why else would they be dressed up like this? It could be Halloween, but something tells us they’re more into comic books. At least you know you’d be safe on board!


Celebrity Sightings

Sometimes, it’s not the weird and wonderful that you see on the subway. Every so often, passengers will see famous people riding trains, too! It makes complete sense when you consider that celebrities are normal people like you and me.

Here we can see how one lucky commuter sat opposite Ian McKellen, the actor famous for playing Gandalf and Magneto. It looks like he’s enjoying some time off from acting while he explores a new city on vacation. He deserves credit for being so humble!

Getting Comfortable

It’s amazing how comfortable people can feel when they’re riding public transport. You would think that everyone would respect other passengers and not do anything too gross or intimate on the subway. Well, not this lady!

We can see how she is putting her bare foot on the subway chair and clipping her toenails! We love that the man in the photo, who could be her husband, shares a look as if to say ‘I’m sick and tired of this!’


Diversity Is Our Strength

With all this talk online about diversity and multiculturalism, everyone seems to forget that in the real world, no one really cares. Nowhere better is that on full display than in New York.

What we’re looking at here are two people with wildly different lifestyle choices. Still, we can see the person on the right doesn’t seem to care, while the lady in the left seems to be smiling in her eyes. It just goes to show that everyone just wants to live together. 

Nothing To See Here…

Just when you think you’ve seen it all! Here’s one character you might just freeze in fear if you meet in person. What the heck is going on, here? We assume it’s a fancy dress costume. Even if that explains why they’re down there, it still doesn’t explain what exactly it is.


What do you think the outfit is trying to represent? We think it’s a weird Addams Family or Beetlejuice type of outfit that is designed to terrify people nearby. Well, we certainly think it’s working.


Subway Lullaby

Anyone with a kid knows just how stressful it can be to travel with one. What with the moving, crying, napping, hunger: there’s a lot of reason to want to avoid it altogether.

This father knew there was one thing that would help his daughter relax on the subway – his violin! He took it with him to play it with her, offering a show for all the other passengers on board. We would love to know what he played her to get her to relax!

Black Mirror

We hope this is something to do with Halloween – otherwise, we really have no idea what is going on! Can you imagine getting onto the subway and seeing someone wearing a 1990s computer screen on their head?

It doesn’t even look that comfortable if you ask us. We wonder how and why she is wearing this and what the response was when she arrived at her eventual destination. It looks straight like an episode of Black Mirror and what the future might look like…
