An artist set up a fist-bump crosswalk in different places around Los Angeles — and it is the best thing.
He put the Walk Bumps at intersections in Echo Park, Silver Lake, Arts District and Venice Beach (which have since been taken down).
Adan told me via email:
“One day I was waiting in the crosswalk looking at the button and instead of pushing in a common way, I just bumped it and then I said to myself, “why not reproduce a real fist and glue it to the button?”
Why not, right? I don’t want to push the button to cross, I want to EFFING POUND IT.
Besides, everyone knows the friendly fist-bump has way more social significance than your run-of-the-mill handshake or high five. It’s also more hygienic.
