High Fives! Ayyyyyy!

Improveverywhere is a hysterical organization that orchestrates mass demonstrations of silliness and fun. High Five Escalator was one of their most recent endeavors; they garnered many happy smiles from their "victims', if you can even call them that. I think they perked up everyone they passed. Watch the video to see what happened.

A lot of the commenters were complaining about the potential for germs, which I thought was a bit ridiculous. I hate germaphobes. Recently a friend of mine said she read an article that said eating food that fell on the floor is actually good for you! Anyhow, here are some of the more negative comments.


Wow Rob,

Did you boil your hand in Listerine afterwards?

Then again, after brushing up against a couple dozen people without pants a few weeks ago, I really shouldn’t be so squeamish about meeting people on the subway.


I hate to say this, but there is no way one of the college guys wouldn’t think to touch either his “gluteal furrow” or scrotum before hi-fiving. It’s too tempting. Most of the people touched some kind of nether-sweat.

And here's mine.

The looks on the people’s faces are amazing! I would love for this to happen to me.

Who cares about germs? They’re good for you, keeps your immune system strong.

  1. Andrea, gotta agree with you here. My friend who's a bio major was recently discussing some research allegedly claiming that if a massive/bubonic plague-level outbreak of disease were to reach the US, a lot of the population would be screwed off the bat due to germophobe-induced, incredibly weak immune systems etc etc etc
