Ok, so I dare you to try and not smile while watching this 4 minute video. While he may appear to be a crazy street person, he’s not. His name is Matthew Silver and is a street performer. He’s also a man with a message. In this short video he’s going from store to store in New York’s Union Square beating a drum, dancing, and chanting the mantra, “Love is the answer, stop buying stuff.” Just in time for Grey Thursday and Black Friday. Okay, maybe he is crazy, but this is still great. Anyhow, if you want to be cheered up a bit, this’ll surly do the trick.
I have posted this video before but not in quite a while. I came across it recently and thought I would re-share. I find it really soothing. There was obviously a camera on the front of a street car–probably a person standing there holding it–because everyone keeps looking. I also find the amount of bicycle really impressive. Anyhow, it you have a spare few minutes you may enjoy this.
