Homeless Pickup Artist Living in Austin, Trying to Bang Your Girl

How is this guy getting laid and you're not?

Whatever happened to this dangerous creep? Here is the original post from two years ago:

Have you seen this dude wandering around downtown Austin? This drunk, Polo wearing twenty-something is not your average 6th Street frat daddy (although he looks like one).

His name is Joe and he is one of New York City's finest homeless pick up artists. The 28 year-old has been the subject of many blogs, talk shows and unexpected visits to the clinic.

How does he do it?

By stealing hair jell from CVS, losing any inhibition with cheap vodka and then smooth talking drunk girls. He recently took up residence in Austin and claims to be shacking up with different ladies, several nights a week.

Here's a NSFW piece Elite Daily did on Him:


If you were homeless, could you still pick up chicks?

Meet Joe, the homeless Millennial who has mastered the art of getting women to take him home with them.

Originally from Boston, Joe, 26, may spend his daylight hours panhandling in Manhattan – making up to $150 on a given day – but his nights are a completely different ballgame.

If you don’t think Joe looks homeless, well, that’s only because he’s good at what he does. According to Joe, his only responsibility is to not look homeless. In his mind, his appearance is a survival tactic.

Joe spends whatever money he makes on keeping his appearance up, in addition to copious amounts of drugs and booze, with one goal in mind: attract as many girls as possible.

For Joe, sleeping with a lady is his only chance at sleeping with a roof over his head. Joe uses his charm and good looks to sleep out with chicks three to four nights a week, where he’ll shower and enjoy an evening away from the streets.

After meeting Joe – about a block from our office – the Elite Daily Video Team spent over a week with him, chronicling his epic lifestyle and learning about the hardships and triumphs of one “cardboard all star.”
