The plan was simple one: Compliment strangers and make them smile.
"We jumped in a car and yelled nice things to people... We even used a megaphone!" wrote YouTube comedian Blake Grigsby.
Grigsby drove around the streets of Chicago in a convertible, shouting compliments to unsuspecting citizens, hoping to make their day.
The strategy worked. Instead of ignoring Grigsby's loud praise, people responded with huge smiles, thumbs up and thanks.
"Your hair reminds me of a sunrise and it is quite awesome," Grigsby told one stranger.
"You are a very handsome man," he told another.
To a couple walking down a sidewalk together, he shouted: "You guys are a cute couple! That is so cute!"
And when he spotted a man reading new listings in a realtor's window, he offered some encouragement: "You're an excellent reader, sir. Excellent."
He even got a little romantic: "I hope you're a part of my never-ending story, sir. You're a very handsome man."Read More »from Drive-by compliments make strangers smile
