Say Something Nice was one of Improve Everywhere’s project mission. The idea is to put a wooden lectern with a megaphone holster and attached to it is a sign that read, “Say Something Nice.” The thing is placed in a public place at New York and then left alone.
The experiment was to see if New Yorkers were given the opportunity to amplify their voices to ‘say something nice’ what would they say? Or would they say anything at all?
People are hesitant at first, but most people do take the opportunity to say something nice. Although there are those opportunistic folks that used the megaphone to promote their agenda but over all people are all good and when given the opportunity to amplify that they sure show it.
Improv Everywhere calls themselves a New York City-based prank collective, that causes scenes of chaos and joy in public spaces. They are well known for creating big flash mod-like scenes in public spaces. Usually their mission involved a lot of actors (who they call, ‘agents’) to be part of especially their spontaneous musicals where a group of people would break out a song as if they were in a musical. However this time is a simple act of putting a megaphone and see what the people passing by will react to it.
