My personal project of touching strangers didn't get nearly the same positive reception.

Elite Daily must be affiliated with CBS News. cause that's what this is, a link to something from CBS News.

So suddenly I'm watching some sh*t from a CBS show I had zero intention of watching, thanks to these tricky redirect partner ad network trusted partner shill paid partner things.

I miss Fark when it just was idiots linking stuff other idiots thought was funny.

// full discloser: I'm an idiot. But not enough of one to want to watch CBS

I'd put a cop and gang banger together. The cop on one knee holding the bangers hand, as if asking for his hand in marriage.

Or an older Wall Street guy with a homeless elderly black man, having sex. And a priest waving an American flag over them. Very slowly.

"Born with a prehensile tail in an Amish commune just west of Beijing, Sean Levinson always dreamed of being crowned lord of the dance. Unfortunately, his goals were derailed after he responded to an ad for a fluffer posted by Elite Daily. It was here where Sean discovered that all he was really after was drugs, money, and a lucrative job that would get him more money to pay for drugs."

WTF?

Will he ask me to touch a pregnant woman's belly?

OMG! Your day is completely f*cked now. There is no going back to any semblance of normalcy.

Anybody got a link to the pics?  His website still only had the video.

/never thought I'd prefer a slideshow

I'd like to see the actual pic's.

I think it's a rather cool project.

Thanks, asshole. Typical farking New Yorker.

Can't access video from current location. Hate that more and more sites doing video


I want text and pictures... no video please...

No shiat...was expecting to see pics and get a video instead?

Fark REALLY sucks these days.

Imagine if it was more accepted to just touch, hug, or really get in people's personal space.  Every business would have a few intimacy rooms in the corner.

There should be a law against posting video links without saying they are video links.

/not really

Am I alone in thinking that in most of those photos the people don't look very comfortable with each other?
 
2013-10-25 01:01:34 PM
Hey, Internet. When you're doing a story about photographs, HOW ABOUT SHOWING THE PHOTOGRAPHS? If I wanted to watch video, I'd turn on the TV.
 
2013-10-25 01:01:41 PM
feel-good story of the day.
 
2013-10-25 01:01:53 PM
An article about pictures containing no pictures.

Jokes on you.  That is an iPhone under there.
 
2013-10-25 01:02:27 PM
Thanks to mrshowrules... have a virtual beer on me.


Funny... over half of those LOOK like strangers being asked to pose together... no natural chemistry showing.

Some do though... like the couple in the diner... who knows... maybe they really were attracted to each other and glad to be able to briefly fawn on each other.
 
2013-10-25 01:02:28 PM
This has existed for decades.  It is called stock photos.

Just GIS 1 asian, 1 latino, 1 white and 1 lesbian black woman in a wheel chair:

hmmm, but those are all talent that are hired and paid to look the part. They know what they were getting into.

These people are random strangers posing for a camera from the 20s.

This sounds like it was very difficult for you, emotionally and physically.

You should ask for your money back.

Looks the same to me.  In fact, after seeing the pics, I'm not at all impressed with the project.

Nope. I don't see how the results were supirising at all. A couple of them "worked" but most were meh.

no kidding we aren't all lazy millennials working as baristas watching this on our iphones.
Some of us don't want to hog company bandwidth to watch a VIDEO about someone taking pictures to see pictures.

"some of the chicks here are hotties." In that world, they're all 80-year-old overweight trannies.

They could almost share a thought bubble.

The guy on the left is thinking "If my straight friends see this I will never hear the end of it." The guy on the right is thinking "If my gay friends see this I will never hear the end of it."

Thank you!

Those pictures are very interesting, some are even profound I think....his kickstarter is going to get a donation from me.
 
2013-10-25 01:16:18 PM
Seems like the people he put together look like there're being forced to do this.

I...honestly have never seen so many people react with such emotional violence over a video. It's two minutes long for chrissakes, take it easy.  THIS is why Fark sucks? Because a visual link had a different visual medium than the one you expected?
