Regis Philbin

Hitchhikes

No one taught Regis Philbin about stranger danger -- the iconic TV host hopped into a random van in New York City when he couldn't hail a cab … and it's all on video!

It all went down Wednesday afternoon ... when two guys happened upon Regis standing in the street, trying to get a ride.

Reege must have been in a crazy hurry, because he took the guys up on their offer for a lift. Check out the photo below ... he wasn't exactly hopping into a town car!

Despite the creepy unmarked van, Regis got where he needed to go -- 8 blocks away -- in one piece. 

Don't try this at home, kids.

what's the big deal? the city if full of 'dollar cabs'. they're independants, most of whom are licensed & insured, who go down bus routes picking up passengers for a fee.

it's a very new york thing.

He can't walk EIGHT blocks?? He was trying to get a cab for eight blocks? Pathetic. In this city, walking most times is faster than trying to get a cab OR getting stuck in the traffic!
