Commuting in the Big Apple has gotten so bad, a New Jersey man chose to cross the Hudson River on a paddle board to make his meeting on time — in a suit.

“I didn’t wanna pay for the toll,” 32-year-old Scott Holt said.  In order to get to Manhattan, Holt had to use his momentum to cruise through the wake from nearby ferry boats.

“I didn’t really know where I was going. I was just aiming in that direction." Holt hit rougher waves once he got closer to Manhattan, and realized he needed to get to shore. The funnyman paddled up to a closed-down water taxi dock and found a curious police officer, who was waiting for him. “He was just more confused than anything,” Holt said. “He didn’t know what to do with me. I was like, ‘Hey man, do you want me to go somewhere else? I don’t want to come out here and be arrested.’”
