The Hopscotch Experiment

The folks from The Cut drew a colorful hopscotch board on a sidewalk in Seattle, just to see how many people would use it. They recorded video for ten hours and counted the people who walked by. To be honest, only a small percentage of people tried it, but thankfully, this video is mostly edited to show those who did.

And they are worth watching. The simple game brought a smile to a lot of faces. -via Tastefully Offensive

They should repeat this experiment in various cities to see which ones are more fun. Also, such a dearth of small children in Seattle! I thought I'd see a lot more kids.

This is delightful. However, I think the guy in the safety vest at 2:12 may be obsessive-compulsive. He plays, but there isn't an ounce of joy in his demeanor. It's more like he's thinking, "There is a hopscotch board, so I must jump. It is required."
