What grand romantic gestures have you made on a whim?
I had a friend (yes, it was really me) who in their younger years would try to respond to those situations when their heart skipped a beat. The result was impromptu poetry scribbled on bus tickets, or a bow-tie created out of a crisp packet.
If only there were emergency flowers around, it may not have changed history but the air of romance would have been far greater.
This film follows intrepid street-style cupids as they place emergency flowers throughout the amorous city of Paris.
Apparently, the flowers have been strategically, if not scientifically, placed. You know how it is – the way the shimmering light reflecting off the water catches their eyes in a certain location. That sort of thing.
It’s a ruse created by the engine of romance that is funnyhowflowersdothat.co.uk
But Paris isn’t the only town for lovers. The emergency flowers have been placed on trains leaving Amsterdam.
And you can get your hands on your own ‘In case of love at first sight’ boxes, too, for more power to your own romantic elbow. Just pop over to the Funny How Flowers Do That Twitter and Facebook pages to find out how.
And while you’re waiting for your emergency love box consider the film, and ask yourself, do the couple get together? Or did any of the running, jumping cupids find solace in each other’s arms at the end of a busy, flower-fuelled night?
