Funny or Scary? Free Hugs


The hugger in this picture did a social experiment to see if strangers would take him up on his offer of "free hugs." There's a video of this that's heartwarming and inspirational and all that, but I wonder how your average person would respond to a hippie-lookin' dude inviting you to hug him. So Giggle Girls, do you think that "free hugs" from strangers are...

Some insane people attempted this "experiment" in my school dining hall. The operations manager had to come and stop them. It was hilarious! ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.

I would hug if he didn't look dirty/smell. This guy just looks like a dork, so he's ok. Sweet video.

I saw the clip last night. And I think I'd give him a hug. That's of course it's in broad daylight and I was with someone :)

i don't think this is scary. my first thought is that this is some sort of study and someone is watching and taking notes and making tally marks.

Hey!!! I go to Montclair State, In New Jersey, and they JUST did that! In the quad, I think it was Friday, there were four or five people hugging others, holding signs. I was pretty leery at first but it was just that, free hugs, so as I passed by this one girl she offered and we hugged. It was nice...weird...but helped with all my midterm stress.

Interesting idea. I can't really decide if it is scary or funny. I guess there is the social science person speaking out of me.
