This isn't so much a wingman as a wing dummy.

Check out this video of a ventriloquist using his dummy to help him meet women on a subway in New York.

New York is known for being tough and impatient, but this guy's got a captive audience as his little friend does all the work while he tries to score some digits.

Sure, it's cute, but isn't also just a wee bit creepy? There are already plenty of weirdos riding the subway without a fella tooling around a pint-sized wooden person adding to the melting pot of bizarre.

It may have been a joke, but it sure seemed like a page out of the playbook used by Wolowitz on CBS' "The Big Bang Theory."
