Contagious Yawning Takes Times Square (VIDEO)


Our modern world is constantly buzzing with light!, sound!, and total frenetic energy! No where is this more apparent than New York City’s Times Square. Artist Sebastian Errazuriz is bucking the trend and challenging visitors to take a break from the madness with a billboard installation of a slow-paced, no-color yawning video. It plays every night this month on screens throughout the tourist mecca. The dude literally looks around and yawns a few times. We love it!


Will the video’s message of taking a minute to stop and yawn take hold? Will New York City slow down? Only time will tell.
