Fare evader hides in baggage compartment

A new viral video sensation is sweeping the net, showing a young man cleverly evading ticket inspectors by cramming himself into the tiny baggage space above his seat.

Watch what happens in the clip above when he squeezes himself in. Impressive or just really thrifty?

The video was uploaded by a Polish YouTube user, leading many to suspect the train was somewhere in Eastern Europe when the video was taken. It has since surpassed 250,000 views.

The video's Polish title translates as "Cichociemni? No, it's just a stowaway!". The "Cichociemni" were an elite division of the Polish Army.

While the fare evader hasn't yet been nabbed, the video shows his face, and he posed for photos with other passengers. He might be internet famous, sure, but at what cost?
