13th & Spruce vent guy gets some national notice

13th & Spruce vent guy gets some national notice

    Reddit has discovered a new internet superhero: Subway Vent Guy
    A thread on Reddit's popular r/pics subreddit has been dubbed the "thread of the year" thanks to its subject - a bare-chested guy in baggy pants standing over a subway grate. As a standalone artistic statement, "bare-chested guy standing over a subway grate" is an interesting but ultimately hollow concept.
