A man taunts the audience with a hundred dollar bill, claiming that he will give it to the first audience member who comes up on stage and hugs him. The man invites his spectators to ponder what would drive a human being to give away a hundred bucks for a simple hug. At first, he enjoys this game that he has created, but as time rolls on and no one comes up to claim his prize, the man turns bitter and his possible reasons for needing a hug become more and more alarming. Finally, someone from the audience (a plant) comes up on stage and hugs the lonely man, providing him with the human interaction that he has been desperately craving. He hands the audience plant the money and solemnly exits without looking back.
