Art: Promenade New Year Celebration In June?!

Crosswalk Countdown - GuerilLA from Kelly Herrington on Vimeo.

"GuerilLA had some New Year’s Eve style fun this past weekend. Agent Wilner writes:

In Santa Monica there are many crosswalks that have countdown clocks signifying how long you have until you can’t cross the intersection anymore. We gathered a group of 50 agents and counted down a number of those clocks - very loudly. At the end of each countdown we went nuts - hugging, hi-fiving, cheering, screaming, using our noisemakers, toasting with our fake champagne, etc. Just like on New Year’s Eve. It was amazing! We did this at about seven intersections along the Santa Monica Promenade and then dispersed.

Also worth noting is that two participants got engaged during the mission (you’ll notice they are congratulated at the end of the video.) What better time to get engaged than New Year’s Eve! On June 8!"


  1. This is so fantastically awesome. I wish I could have celebrated. Damn, I'm ALWAYS home on NYE :)And I love the people's expressions as they walk by and get high fived.

  2. I loved the smiles on the kid's faces...totally bewilderment! (I don't use that word enough.)

  3. I don't use the word Periwinkle enough. It's too fun.
