Amy Poehler and Billy Eichner Pull Off an Epic Christmas Prank

12/14/2013 at 08:15 AM EST

While many of us do it for fun, comedian Billy Eichner actually makes a living yelling at people on the streets of New York.

You can usually see Billy causing a ruckus on his show, Funny or Die's Billy on the Streets on Fuse, but this week he headed to Jimmy Kimmel Live to reveal a holiday version of his comedy/performance art with a special guest star: Amy Poehler.

Watch as Eichner and Poehler ambush New Yorkers on the street and try to get them to sing Christmas carols. If they join in, they earn cold hard cash. If they don't know the words, Billy and Amy are out of there. And if you don't recognize Amy? Well, you've been warned.
