Craig Rowen asked for a million dollars and got a million dollars

By Melissa Bell

WHAT THE HECK. Why didn't we think of this?!

When comedian Craig Rowen went onto YouTube to make a series of videos asking for a million dollars, it was a lark, a funny prank to get his name passed around on the Web. OR SO I THOUGHT.

I was wrong. Some guy named Benjamin actually decided to give Rowen a million dollars and will hand it over to him at the UCB theater in Los Angeles. Watch:

Could this be an elaborate hoax to get people to come see their show? Perhaps. Or perhaps making a million dollars is really just as easy as asking for it. Dang you, Craig Rowen.

So. Anyone have a spare million?
