If you watched last week’s Sexy Vs. Skanky episode you might have noticed something rather odd happening at the 2:44 minute mark. There is a man wearing an orange vest leading a woman around on what appears to be a leash. Even though this is New York City and stranger things have happened, the Hello Style team did some digging around to find out what was REALLY going on that day!
As it turns out, the man in question really was leading the woman along on a leash, but don’t start getting any crazy ideas! This was actually part of a collaboration between Improv Everywhere and Buzzfeed to prove the point that walking while texting is dangerous.
Instead of going the boring route, Improv Everywhere and Buzzfeed offered a ridiculous solution to the problem, which in turn delivered their message loud and clear. To make this happen, they enlisted 60 participants who then divided into pairs. Half were “Seeing Eye People” (wearing bright orange vests) and the other half were unobservant people instructed to text and walk.
