It’s not often that finding something unexpected on the subway brings a smile to your face. 

But Vimeo user Nick Smatt managed to create just such a rare phenomenon with his well-timed guerilla campaign of good cheer: “Go Love.”

The three-minute long video sees Smatt leaving a number of roses for unsuspecting riders on the F train.

“This Valentine’s Day, no one needs a Valentine. What they need is love,” flashes on the screen, before the pleasantly surprised commuters discover their gifts.

Each rose is attached with a tag that reads: “It’s not who you love. It’s that you love. Give this rose to someone on this subway that doesn’t have one. Happy Valentine’s Day.”

The ensuing exchange of flowers should bring a smile to any jaded New Yorker’s face. Watch the heart-warming video below.
