Ever ridden the subway in New York? You might have noticed something odd that happens each time the train pulls into a station: the conductor will stick out their hand, and point to a black-and-white strip along the wall to confirm that the train is at the right point on the platform to open its doors. It's one of those everyday safety protocols that gets ignored most of the time — which made it perfect fodder for the "experiment" above.
After noticing hundreds of conductors thanklessly doing their part for rider safety, Yosef Lerner and Rose Sacktor decided to thank them. How? By standing right below the strip, and holding signs bearing the following messages:
- Point here if you are not wearing pants right now
- Point here if you have taken a selfie while driving
- Point here if you have seen a passenger naked
- Point here if shoot the target with your laser finger [bullseye]
- Point here if you are dead sexy
- Point here if you still love Thomas The Tank Engine
- Point here if Snape kills Dumbledore
- Point here if the 2nd Ave Subway is a lie
- Point here if NY is the greatest city in the world
And of course, they had their cameras ready to record the result.
