THE SLAP

Remember that video where all those strangers kissed one another on film for the first time? Could anything be more beautiful than that? Yes. Something could.

My friend Max Landis made a video of strangers slapping each other. It’s by far my favorite thing he’s ever done.  Here’s Max describing what he did:

"I gathered acquaintances, friends both casual and close, paired them randomly, put them in a void, and asked them to hit each other in the face. No one was pressured, and everyone was hit as hard as THEY asked to be hit. To go beyond the parody for the full story of what happened, be sure to watch Point of Impact."

My dad getting sworn in as one of the country’s youngest Federal prosecutors in the mid 60s.  He dealt with organized crime, espionage and a corrupt judicial and political system.  He ran into a burning building to save a neighbor, faced down an attacker with a machete and somehow was always home in time for family dinners.  He even gave me hope that you can date a crazy person and still wind up with someone as wonderful as my mom. remains my hero and, needless to say is a tough act to follow.  Wishing the best possible Father’s Day to all those who’ve lost theirs, and hoping everyone who’s lucky enough to still have theirs gets to tell them how much they mean while they are still around.  You’ll always be missed dad, but never forgotten, dad. #fathersday #tbt
