Initial distrust of Juan`s motives eventually gave way to a gradual increase of people willing to be hugged, with other huggers (male and female) helping distribute them. After some time, security guards, then police told them they must stop, as Mann had not obtained public liability insurance worth $25 million for his actions.[4] Mann and his companions used a petition to attempt to convince authorities that his campaign should be allowed to continue without the insurance. His petition reached 10,000 signatures, and he submitted it and was allowed to continue giving free hugs. (extract from wikipedia)

They tried to stop him

they said it was unwanted sexual touching or something like that

I`d give free hugs too. I`d hug everybody! Even hippies and winos! Everyone deserves love. And I`m glad to see I wasn`t the only one that thought that guy reminded them of Jesus. And not just what he looked like either.

This was an amazing video and everyone should take note and be more kind to people. Bravo to that man for his idea. Also the guards were probably just banning the camera man because people are so anal about any kind of photography or video.

What is up with those gaurds? What was he doing wrong? Banning hugging is like saing that you can`t smile. Hugs rule. I want to find this guy. And I don`t like hugs that much. Rock on!

I was giving out free hugs one day at school (inspired by this video). And everyone at school though I was crazy, although I did get hugs from about 15-20 people (out of over 600 kids in the whole school), including one of my teachers.

It makes me sad to see so many people do not enjoy this video. It`s completely changed my life, actually. I`ve been inspired to get involved with the free hugs campaign and have since started giving out free hugs at school. While there are those that think it is rediculous, every smile I see (if it is in the act of giving me a hug or rather a person laughing at me) allows me to know that I`m making some sort of difference in that persons day.

This is the type of thing that separates the mature people from the children. For example, those of you who keep saying things such as, "If groping were involved, I`d be sold" or "if it were `free handjobs` instead it would be great" are immature and can`t understand a valuable meaning in something as simple as a hug. And those of you who think Juan is gay, a hippie, and/or a pervert are just trying to make sense of something that you are unfamiliar with- the act of giving without expecting something in return.

thats pretty nice. i mean, the soppy drating wemo soundtrack is a bit contrived. but the overall thing is good. i cannot drating believe the cops banned free hugs. FREE HUGS FOR dratS SAKE! what next? but the man got a petition and got 10,000 drating signatures. and drating did it again. sound. i`d give that man a hug, even though he is a bit of a hippie. and this is coming from a punk...

For a little bit I thought it was Melbourne, and since the guy looks a bit like a friend of mine I was going "Yeah, go (insert name here)!"... Then it turned out to be Sydney (I knew because I spotted Myer in the background and it wasn`t Myer Melbourne [where I work])

Anyway, to those who decried this vid, you`re all silly little people with no faith in humanity. I would do this with a bunch of friends too. And I`d film it and put it on Youtube to show that I, too, am a good person who has love for her fellow citizens.

Sweet video.

To Yourshoes:

Yes, it is slightly unoriginal. Like I have said before, I realize this was on the top of the featured list on YouTube when it was here. However, not everyone goes on YouTube, and I really think everyone should see this. I would have put it up here regardless of where I found it, and I think you should appreciate it regardless of where it was found. This isn`t about "OMG this video was totali on a popular website, so it must suck!" This is about the uniqueness of the video itself. It`s kind of sad (In my personal opinion) that some people can`t see that.

What? Gay guys can`t fistfight? I`ve seen some gay guys kick ass, pal.
So, even if you were to win a fistfight against me, it does nothing to show what your sexual preference is.
You`re a little homophobic, I think. :-D

As a male I must admit that I actually liked it. I thought it was touching and I am glad that people do not judge him and just hug him, it brings out hope in society. But with the good there is always the bad, I will probably get labeled as being `gay` or `emo` or something of that sort. That`s okay, I know I am not, my girlfriend knows I am not, so I don`t care. I think that he did a great thing and as for James and Eno, Sounds like you need a hug. ::hug::. Hugs for all!

That was sweet. The concept is touching. I`d hug him. The song is now a favorite.

How did the message miss so many people? Everyone`s the same. And take time out for the simple things. The man was giving out free hugs which resulted in happiness. He wasn`t asking for anything. The number of people that passed him without a second glance is astounding. Kind of sad.

The whole point here is not to prejudge a person based on appearance`s or fear based assumptions. We are all human beings sharing this rock and we should treat each other with a little more love and compassion. Those who would react negatively to this kind of thing are really only reflecting the lack of love in their own life. Sad really.

The way I see it, the world is socially falling apart whether we like it or not, and for someone to hold us all together by hugging random people is just incredible. I would stand right by this man and do the same thing to show that there are people out there that aren`t careless about everyone. I`m sure a poor, lonely, heartbroken dude inches away from suicide would think twice if somebody just gave him a hug. It doesnt take alot to show a person that somebody cares about them, it just takes a heart-to-heart interaction like a simple hug.

I ACTUALLY MADE A BADASS FRIEND WHEN THIS CHICK WAS PLAYING INDOOR SOCCER. SHE STEPPED ON THE BALL WHILE SPRINTING FOR A GOAL AND HAD A PRETTY NASTY FALL. THE OTHER GIRLS LAUGHED AT HER AND SHE GOT SO UPSET SHE LEFT THE GAME. WHEN SHE WAS LEAVING I COMPLIMENTED HER ON HER HARDCORE WIPEOUT BECAUSE IT REMINDED ME OF ONE TIME I STEPPED ON THE DAMN BALL MYSELF.(SH`T HAPPENS). GODDAMN THAT SUCKED. I ALMOST BROKE MY WRIST TRYING TO CUSHION THE FALL. IT WAS ALL NUMB FOR HOURS.

ANYWAY I SAID TO HER THAT A HUG WOULD MAKE IT FEEL ALL BETTER AND HECK YEAH. MAN IT WAS AWESOME. SHE`S BADASS!

This is probably the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. People try to kill it by saying, "what if it was this person. or this person." It doesn`t matter. Someone did it. It was beautiful. And it touched tons of people. I hugged everyone after I saw this. Everyone underestimates hugs. People have learned not to like them, not to give them. They are beautiful things that can brighten anyones day. I commend this guy for all his efforts, and anyone else who reaches out to make someone feel appreciated and noticed in this world.

Why is being gay an insult? My brother is gay. My best friend`s grandpa is gay. Some of my closest friends are gay. So what? They are normal people like you and I. If someone said `Haha! He is such a christian." or "Eww he is so stupid! He is italian!" No. And if you did, a hell of a lot of people would freak out and yell at you. So stop making fun of gays. They are allowed to be gay, and you are allowed to be straight. So stop acting like its an insult. Because it isn`t. Now go and give some people hugs!

I agree with OAmyO. Anyone who left an stupid comment I think NEEDS a hug. What is SO wrong with affection? Also whats this about " I would never hug a hippie?" Who gives a red rusty rats ass about who it is. There is so much cruely in this world to day that we need to regroup ourselves and ask ourselves what is more important, love or hate. I for one LOVED this video and any negative comments before or after this dont deserve recognition.

I wouldn`t mind getting a free hug.
But I would mind getting it from him.

I loved this. It is adorable! He is just trying to cheer people up...No need to bash on him. Come on, he hugged old ladies, a little girl, men, anyone! There was nothing perverted about that, he just wants to make the world alittle happier. Stop thinking everything anyone does is for bad intent.

wow that was awsome, I could use a hug at the moment actually. I loved the begining where he hugged the short old lady. but yeah I think a few of the guys borrowed the signs so they could have hot women hug them...

Heey i did a free hug thing last weekend! It was awesome, i got so many hugs. Also did a free slap but realised it wasn`t such a good idea after the second one got my lip caught in my brace and made it swell up. But it rocks and it`s really fun.

Regardless of the music, for me this video is very touching. It magnifies the lack of affection in day-to-day life. As a whole, humans seem so cold these days and it`s sad.

It`s too bad that the message of that video completely flew over some people`s heads. Banning free hugs? WTF? I definetly would have signed it. The problem with people today is they are so uptight that you couldn`t pull a pin outta their ass. That video was awesome, and we all know it fells a lot better being nice than it does being an ass hole. Rating 4! YAY!

Wow.. giving out free hugs is great.. even if you do spend ages with people just looking at you thinking `what a weirdo`.

Still.. the hugs (and wibbles on occassion!) more than make up for it!

It depends on the duration and squeezability of the hug. Those ones do seem quite squeezy - so, I agree with the above posters: add a wee grope in there, and I`m sold.

I got to the link before it was posted! lol

interesting, but without the music, idk if you all would be as touched as you would be scared.
seriously most of us would think he`s a bum or a druggie. am I right?
