Hand-holding prank leads to possible love connection6/11/2012
We don't recommend trying this at home, or on any sidewalk in a busy city. Branching out from the popular meme of high-fiving strangers, like at the Leaning Tower of Pisa, Andrew Hales decided to really violate people's personal space and pranked unsuspecting women (and men) by sauntering up and trying to hold their hands. Hales doesn't get a lot of takers, but surprisingly, one charming redhead seemed quite taken by his approach and cooed a soft "Hey" after he grabbed her hand. It seemed like a genuine moment, and one commenter mentioned, "I wish you would have shown more ... looked like she was into it." Maybe the direct approach really does work.
How would you react if a stranger tried to hold your hand?
