Liz Koto's family from Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan put up a hilarious sidewalk sign encouraging pedestrians to 'silly walk'.
As quarantine around the world progresses, people are trying their best to bring a little fun and humor in the atmosphere. In one such attempt, this family from Michigan put up a hilarious sidewalk sign encouraging pedestrians to 'silly walk'.
If you don’t know what a silly walk is, you should probably Google ‘Monty Python silly walk.’
This GIF explains it pretty well though.
This humorous stiff-back, high-kicking movement derives from the Monty Python sketch appropriately titled, "The Ministry of Silly Walks." I am pretty sure if you have not heard about it, you will have a good laugh once you get to know what it is.
The Koto family from Grosse Pointe Park, Michigan, placed a sign in their yard encouraging these exact movements from pedestrians.
The sign says,
“You have now entered the jurisdiction of silly walks. Commence silly walking immediately.”
It further instructs,
“Follow @Yorkshire_Silly_Walks for highlights. Your walk may be posted! We’re all in this together so let’s have some fun while we can! (Don’t know how to silly walk? Google Monty Python Ministry of Silly Walks for inspiration.)”
Surprisingly passersby are loving the idea and are fully complying with the rules.
Take a look.
Ever since it was posted earlier this month, it's proven to be a huge hit with everyone who takes the time to read it.
Liz Koto, the one who put the sign up told bored panda,
“My neighbors seem to love it. Some of them walk by more than once a day and make sure to silly walk.”
You can take a look at their Instagram page for more funny videos.
One passerby actually left the Koto family a note following her silly walking experience.
This is not the first-time people have tried making quarantine fun. From putting stuffed toys in their windows to making art on paths to inspire people, people around the world are doing their best to lift the spirits of their fellow beings.
