Would reading an email like “You could make a lemon laugh” make us feel sufficient about you to ultimately distribute kindness to other people? That’s the theory behind the entire world’s biggest compliment bath, a massive spigot installed in Antwerp’s Central facility honoring Global Compliments Day 2015.

Imagined up by innovative agency FRIENDSHIP and commissioned by manner store e5, the set up features exactly what looks like the absolute most absurdly oversized bath mind available looming over commuters as they go through the place. An indicator merely states, ‘Pull for praise.’

Anyone who does therefore (not minding the small print, which reads ‘Smile, you’re on camera,’) immediately gets a huge selection of complimentary phrases rained upon them and everybody watching. The tiny blue waterdrop-shaped documents bear emails like “You appear to be a million bucks these days.”
