Twenty eight million people saw the video 'How Does A Homeless Man Spend $100' but it's being reported the video was staged.

Prankster Josh Paler Lin is seen in the video giving a homeless man $100.  Then he follows him to see how he'd spend it.  The homeless man is referred to as "Thomas'.  At first, Thomas is seen entering the liquor store, but then the video takes a twist as it shows that the man buys food for other homeless people.

In an interview on Vocativ, Taugan Tan Kadalim, the eye witness who claimed he was buying a lottery ticket at the liquor store when Thomas entered, said the whole thing was "staged."

Kadalim claims he saw Lin drive Thomas to the liquor store.  And he said the whole scene seemed staged to him.

Here is the original video that warmed the world over the holidays and just like Christmas dinner that was left out too long, it's now spoiled.
