Not that it's a competition or anything, but I live just 15 minutes walk from where this was filmed, and I hugged him twice already. Feels really good! :P

That is a great video, probably watched it a dozen times, it always gives me warm fuzzies, and often brings a tear to my eyes. The man who started it goes by the pseudonym "Juan Mann" which is a play on words "one man".

It was the original video that spawned other similar free hugs videos, in cities around the world. Some of the others on youtube are good too.

The planet could use a group hug right about now.

What an awesome idea! I laughed when the man took a running jump at him, hehe. Now, where's my tissues?
Isn't it paradoxical that I've done everything I can in my life to avoid the Now through various activities, yet now the Now is what I seek and it's been there forever :0)
