Perhaps you've occasionally seen a man standing on the street corner offering free hugs. Don't judge me because I'm lonely.
The Japanese comedy troupe Guts and Death offers a different take on the practice. Its members stood in a busy area of Tokyo and offered to let people slap them--for free! Some people hesitated to slap with any force. Others seemed to enjoy it a bit too much.
I want to see if this works in America. Let me go find one of Neatorama's interns.
