Copywriter’s wild Truth or Dare experiment in NYC

In an effort to get people talking and having fun in New York City, one creative taped paper all around the park to make it a reality!

Experiment: paper, tape and dares in NYC

Copywriter, comedienne, creative, Chelsea Davison printed 300 cards and taped them around Washington Square Park in New York City, with the cover shown above, simply prompting strangers to pick truth or dare. As a part of encouraging her fellow New Yorkers to be friendly and social, she organized this massive public game of truth or dare wherin a “truth” can be tweeted to @TruthOrDareNYC or perform a “dare” in public such as telling someone you’re Batman, or quacking loudly.

The Twitter account began seeing “truth” responses, and several dares were filmed by Davison:

Just a few days in, the project has been wild and fun. Davison said, “The response was awesome–people started talking, laughing, and having silly, unanticipated fun. Some people even collected the cards as souvenirs.”
