Even though I will be spending Valentine's Day solo this year, I still am enough of a romantic about the whole thing. So when I spotted this 2014 Valentine video, I had to share it.
A crew from Funny How Flowers Do That were sent out to install 1500 cute little boxes that are modeled after emergency boxes. Each containing a single red rose, these were installed throughout crowded and well-known romantic areas of Paris. In case you met your love at first sight, all you had to do to get her/his attention was to just break the glass and take the flower.
"In case of love at first sight, break glass," the boxes say, but it wasn't too dangerous. The "glass" was actually cellophane.
Oh, come on, all you cynics out there, I do know this is just a promotional video to buy roses, but it's still pretty cute. Just sit back and enjoy - and check out this one for 2016.
This Valentine’s Day they're sending out the 'Command Cupid' who's equipped with a high-tech bow that streams live video of real people on the streets of Paris and Berlin. This remote-controlled Cupid will be handing out real roses to the lucky folk that spot him.
But if you're solo, like me, this Valentine's day, the council has you covered. Click here to find out how to survive the day alone or with other solo Valentine friends.
