Giant Microphone Invites People To Shout Out Someone They Love

Sometimes you've got to let the people that matter to you know how you feel. And when you come across a giant microphone marked "Give A Shout Out To Someone Who Changed Your Life" in a public place, it's the ideal opportunity to do just that.

SoulPancake, a media and production company started by actor Rainn Wilson with his friends Joshua Homnick and Devon Gundry, set up the microphone to see how people would respond.

The results are pretty touching (sometimes literally touching - a couple of people run into the mic before they can start speaking).

Whether someone's shouting out their boyfriend, wife, grandmother, mentor, teacher, or favourite sweetener - one guy really likes sugar - the video's a good reminder to be grateful for the people in your life.

Oh, and stick around until 1:27 to see a shout-out to Canada.

It's awesome how many people thank the crowd after their shout-out's done. You know if that mic was smaller, most people would drop it and walk away.

SoulPancake says its mission is "to encourage people to chew on life's big questions and figure out what it means to be human." You can check out more of their videos, conversations, activities and other stuff at the SoulPancake site.
