The ‘Holding People’s Hand’ Video is Fantastically

The ‘Holding People’s Hand’ video from the geniuses at LAHWF features Andrew Hales going up to people and holding their hand at random. The random hand-groping takes place in a public place and catches a few people off guard, but surprisingly quite a few people end up just rolling with it and laughing.

As a funny prank to make people feel awkward and have some fun doing it, the video shows how uncomfortable unexpected physical contact can be. The video ends with him having a conversation with one of his hand-holding conquests, who he recognizes from class. Buzzfeed describes the video as "so simple, yet so brilliant," and it can truly be said that the concept is a fantastically uncomplicated way to prank someone and increase the boundaries of everyday intimacy.
