I visited one of my favourite websites www.operationnice.com and found this great video. A Lectern was left out in a busy street with a simple Note that said ‘Say Something Nice’
I just love the little boy who’s holding a Buzz Lightyear toy and says “To Infinity and Beyond”, so sweet! it was awesome :)
I’d loved to know, What would you have said? leave a comment below, I bet no one can come up with anything better than the little boy who loves Buzz Lightyear, classic I love it!
The Video was produced by Improv Everywhere there website can be found at https://improveverywhere.com/
Improv Everywhere is a New York City-based prank collective that causes scenes of chaos and joy in public places. I would love to be apart of something like this, it’s right up my street.
You have to go to their website and check out the carousel horse race it’s hilarious :)
Say Something Nice was so simple an idea, they made a lectern with a megaphone and just left in Union Square in New York then they just sat back and watched people reaction.
Some really great people stepped up to the podium, some sand songs others pointed out individuals in the crowd to say something nice to them as they passed by :) believe it or not only a few used the podium for selfish reasons like advertising, self promotion and religious rhetoric I guess the concept of saying something nice was beyond these people, but it goes to show the vast majority of people are nice :)
Go to the Improv Everywhere website and check out the behind the article on ‘say something nice’ it gives a more in depth behind the scenes view of the project.
