Created by the talented filmmakers at JZB Projects, the incredibly frustrating short film Mr. Yellow Sweatshirt shows the world's most patient man swiping a few different Metrocards a whopping 34 TIMES before finally gaining access through the subway turnstile in Jackson Heights, Queens.

In this short documentary, one anonymous man has an exceptionally tough time with his card. We’ve all faced intractable machines, and so we admire his persistence.
