Amy Poehler and Billy Eichner spread holiday cheer by ambushing New Yorkers

The two ran through the streets, offering up a dollar to anyone who would sing with them

An incredible holiday edition of Billy Eichner's "Billy on the Street" features Amy Poehler in a "lightning round" segment in which the two comedians ambush New Yorkers, asking them to sign Christmas carols for a dollar.

More amazing than the fact that almost no one can complete the lyrics to well-known carols is the number of people who outright refuse to sing with Poehler and Eichner (and, presumably, don't know who the two comics are).
