Saying Thank You for No Reason!

video imagePlay video
The guy in the video was trying to elicit responses just by saying "thank you" without a specific request...it's funny that most people first responded with a surprised "for what?" but later gave a formal "you're welcome" response, as if they're trying to end/escape the awkward interaction?
