Lots of people dream about winning the lottery and using the winnings to either buy a huge house or take a luxurious vacation. But one man has a different idea about what he’d do if he were the lucky winner.

On Wednesday night, the Powerball prize reached $500 million. (It has since risen to $700 million.) While interviewing people about the jackpot, a FOX 5 newscaster asked the man, “If you won all the money, what would you do with it?” She was not ready for his response. 

But the real follow-up question is, “All of it?” That’s a lot of money.
