Here’s an idea for a social experiment that you can try out the front of your home.
Okay, maybe not technically an ‘experiment’, but it’s something fun you can do to fill a few hours on a boring afternoon.
An English family were bored in isolation, so decided to put up a sign urging people to “commence silly walking”…and people actually followed the sign’s directions.
If you don’t know, the sign is a nod to a Monty Python sketch called ‘The Ministry of Silly Walks’ in which a government department is created purely to develop a new silly walk.
It’s ridiculous and, therefore, wonderful.
The family set up a camera to film what happens and the results are really quite magical.
Some people even drove to the house specifically to showcase their own silly walks:
