Every moment of too-hot, late-making, subway frustration is actually a love connection waiting to happen in this sweet, surreal video.
The New York subway is a magical steel caterpillar that takes riders anywhere they want to go in the city. Except when it doesn’t, which is gallingly often. (Or maybe it just seems that way in Co.Create’s memory. Hard to remember every instance it runs perfectly.) Adrift in the immediacy that is the city’s stock in trade, New Yorkers have a tendency to laser-focus on the frustration of the moment—to the exclusion of all else. A whimsical new video suggests that by doing so we may be just missing our soulmates on every commute.
