Chicago’s Magical Piano In Union Station

To bring some Christmas cheer to holiday travelers, Rob Bliss Creative collaborated with Amtrak to give birth to the magical piano

As commuters walked by the lone piano in Union Station, the ‘magical’ instrument came to life, apparently playing music by itself! 

It was secretly controlled by Andrew Blendermann

Harry Potter In Real Life

When a little British boy pushing a travel cart packed high with luggage and an owl in a cage walks by at the train station, one person obviously comes to mind. 

It must be Harry Potter in real life!

So for their latest Movies In Real Life gimmick, Improv Everywhere sent a young Brit around Penn Station in New York City asking for helping in finding platform 9 and 3/4 that of course doesn’t exist.

Sleeping On Strangers On The Subway Social Experiment

About two weeks ago, a photo of a young guy sleeping on the shoulder of an older man on the subway went viral on the web. 

Users were inspired that Isaac allowed the stranger to sleep on his shoulder for nearly his entire trip. 

Charidy was motivated by the video, and wanted to see if others would do the same.

So they conducted this social experiment on New York City’s subway, and had their prankster ‘pass out’ on people in apparent exhaustion.

This touching video is the results of that experiment.

Moscow Subway Ticket Machine Accepts 30 Squats As Payment

To promote exercise and the 2014 Olympics, Olympic Changes installed a very special ticket machine at the Moscow subway station. 

Instead of accepting money as payment, the high-tech ticket machine only accepted exercise.

Riders could receive a free ticket by standing in front of the machine’s camera, and performing 30 squats or lunges. 

Hey! No cheating!

New York Subway Train Conductors Smile

Train conductors of New York City‘s MTA must point at a black and white sign at every stop to prove they are paying attention. 

Yosef Lerner and Rose Sacktor took advantage of this by holding up cutesy signs that read, “point here if you are sexy,” or, “point here if you are not wearing pants.”

It brought a little happiness to the conductors’ daily grind, and now the video of their uplifting shenanigans is going viral. The video is already trending on DailyDot, Gothamist, Gawker, and BuzzFeed
