The premise behind Billy on the Street is to make random strangers uncomfortable. This video probably made more than a few viewers uncomfortable.
Host Billy Eichner ran into writer Jim Holt (author of Why Does the World Exist?) on the street. Before Eichner and Holt could play a game, Eichner asks the author a few personal questions. One of them was about his sexuality. Things got weird.
I honestly can’t blame Holt for not wanting to tell a random stranger and his camera crew about his sexual preferences. Especially not for $1.
Two dollars, maybe.
