Man hits BMW with a bat after owner blocks traffic for photoshoot

YouTuber Coby Persin shared a video on Twitter of what happened when he and a friend posed in front of a BMW, thus blocking New York City traffic:

Amongst the honks and yells from annoyed passersby, one man eventually came up to the car and bashed the windshield with a bat.
