Big things come in small packages, esse.

The urban, miniature phenomenon that swept the nation has come and gone. Bradley Ellison, a.k.a. Sugarman, made $1 million the first year "Homies" hit the vending machines. "We have been picking the pockets of little children across the city for the past 18 years," the New Yorker said in the video by VICE. The UK site interviewed Sugarman while he lied to bill collectors and collected quarters from places like pizza parlors to corner stores.

Now the Sugarman is lucky if he can round up $35 at one of his stops.

"Such is the life of the fucking vending machine guy."
