Press release quote: "Little connections are happening all over the globe, in every walk of life, every activity, every language," said Mario Zozin, director. "We’re celebrating these connections and inspiring people to take action—to shrug off the boring old routine and begin doing the things they dream of.” 

Comments: Art, skydiving, wheeling a girl around in a shopping cart...smoking. Same thing really. Totally comparable.
