Flash Smile Experiment

March 26, 2012 § Leave a comment

Otherwise known as Smile Attack.

This was an experiment taking the well-being superhero superpower of cheering up people to the extreme, at a tutor’s suggestion.

I spotted a target walking through the campus main hallway, and ran around the building transforming into a superhero. I then attempted to meet the target in a later section of the hallway, jumping out with a smile.

Unfortunately this didn’t really work – it startled people more than making them smile.

What works better is a more natural smile at people who you walk past. It helps to wear a cape but it’s not necessary.

Transformation methods attempted:
Putting on red lipstick
Putting on cape and tiara
Putting pencil between teeth, stimulating smile muscles

Since this is a failed experiment, I haven’t had time to edit the presentation to perfection.
