I believe you missed the point and apparently have a very pessimistic view of the world, I do no think he was annoyed, I think he was shocked that anyone stopped and interacted with him.
Human interaction is worth more than money, the desolation that comes with no one caring would be unimaginable.
The impact upon those children who gave money to help is something they will not forget either. It begins by reconnecting with our each other. This video is an example of this.

He is an actor.
So basically you created a totally fake scenario with an actor just so you had the person's permission. In order to create a video that you hoped would go viral and put a lot of money from advertising, into your pockets, whilst spinning it off as basically "Well, we're trying to promote good vibes and positivity/humanity whilst we're at it". Normally I would be one to complain and say that you and your friends are really no different at all from any other bunch of Youtubers, who will do anything to make a 'buck'. But at least you were honest enough to tell us that the entire thing was completely staged.
Before filming we asked ourselves the following question: Can we simply film a person in distress and put it up on the internet, without asking them or knowing their history? Our answer is quite clearly no, which is why we have hired an actor to take on this role.
