This video of unsuspecting subway riders receiving roses will warm your heart

This video of unsuspecting subway riders receiving roses will warm your heart

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.

Go Love from Nick Smatt on Vimeo.

well i guess its cute-its certainly harmless enough-but at the risk of seeming to be a curmudgeon im on the side of the woman who refused the rose with a wave of her hand and ignored the whole shtick-why should you be an unpaid extra in some egoist's video???

@Richard S I know Nick personally, and he's not an egotist. Don't make assumptions simply because you have little love to give.
