What happens when you hug strangers?
Andrew Hales of LAHWF wanted me to find out.
The above video took place in Dolores Park in San Francisco last Thursday, around 5:30pm. All people hugged are complete strangers.
Andrew challenged me to make the awkward even more awkward:
- Could I score a hug by simply standing like a zombie with my arms out? (He’s good at this)
- Could I go for the “long hold” and hug someone for 5 seconds, 10 seconds, or more?
- Could I hug without saying anything? (Not my strong suit, it turns out)
To make things more interesting, Andrew accidentally–or purposefully?–started the filming at the famously gay southwest corner of Dolores.
