People walking in Austurstræti in downtown Reykjavik on Friday night were surprised by the singing of a hot dog salesman, Patrick Jens Scheving Thorsteinsson. Owner of the hot dog stand, Einar Sturla Mönichen says, "He just started singing, it was his own idea, he's just a refreshing kind of guy. Maybe I'll start hiring people from the Icelandic school of singing because it's so much fun. It's great having a singing hot dog salesman."

A great number of tourists took videos of Patrick singing in the middle of the cold Friday evening.
