Say Something Nice

For our latest Improv Everywhere mission, we placed a lectern with a megaphone on it in public places around NYC. Attached to the lectern was a sign that read " Say Something Nice".

This is what New Yorkers had to say...

I couldn't help myself and had to go up to share some love as well!

Hi Katie :) This is so randomly awesome I just had to share... So this morning I got an FB note that someone had shared this "Say Something Nice" video with me - the friend said that the girl @1:00 reminds her of me. I watched the video and smiled - then suddenly I thought that that gal @1:00 reminded me of... YOU! So I checked your blog here (I've been following your posts via your twitter for ages) and lo and behold, it WAS you! haha, love it - great moment, thanks for sharing... that blue umbrella really IS cute. :D

Ah! This just makes my wish to go to New York even stronger. This was seriously the best thing that I could have seen to start my day.

I vote that these are set up in all big cities over the US. I'm moving to Portland next month...I think they need one, too!

Sally said...

Genius idea! I love random acts of kindness. Well done :)

eliza said...

This is so cute and nice and lovely. I don't often say things out loud to my computer, but I caught myself saying "Awww" more than once. Still my cynical mind wonders how many cuss words and how much general nonsense was edited out :P

I started to cry for some reason. It's great to see that people have something nice to say to each others. Just perfect, a little bit of happiness for everyone.

Anna said...

I love when you post about Improv Everywhere! This was such a great idea, how about you take a business trip to Honolulu and do a little improv here? We'd love it!

Rachel said...

Stay Safe this weekend!!!!

Eva said...

today on tvnews, here in Spain, this improv was the only happy new!!!! I follow your blog like a sleeve, so I knew you said something... I was excited (I know it sound like mad fan) looking for you and... ta da! there you were telling one girl you liked her blue umbrella, and I was screaming my flatmates "This is Katie!, this is katie!, Moo's owner!"

It's a silly thing, but maybe you liked to know you were here, many kilometres far ago, on the tv news with the only happy new.

Thanks for everything!

Raptor Plateado said...

Katie I had never heard your voice... you have a very sweet voice...

Franziska said...

We should put up a say-something-nice-megaphone in every city. People so easily forget to voice their good thoughts...

smiles,
F.

iris said...

Thanks for everything. Really. You can't imagine how much happiness and inspiration you give me! :)

Eva, que alegría ver a otra española! Yo no ví la noticia pero seguro que habría gritado también! ;)

Sarah said...

This is such an awesome idea Katie! I love how happy everyone in the video was. People should try to do things like this more often. You never know how something so little like receiving a compliment can make someone's day!

Zoё said...

What a beautiful and positive idea.

This is awesome! I wish people where I live would have the guts to express themselves the way New Yorkers do :)

Julie said...

That was awesome :D Also, I think the two guys with guitars singing something about Leather Jackets were Hamish and Andy who are comedians and radio presenters from Australia who are doing some kind of tour of the US. Or something :P

Instant Flowers said...

This is why I love New York! Great project, awesome video!

Mela said...

They brought this on German TV and guess who was shown - yeah, you and the woman with the umbrella. :)

Mela said...

This is amazing! I didn't know it was an 'improv-everywhere-action' until I checked your blog. I was watching German TV and thought 'Oh, she looks like Katie Sokoler' and I actually was right. :)
Missed the chance to say something into that megaphone, so:
Have a lovely day everybody!

TrousersShoesandSkirts said...

Oh, I saw this on German TV! Didn't know it was one of your projects ♥

Scout said...

That's amazing! I want to be part of Improv Everywhere.
