This girl’s train journey was painfully ordinary and boring, until she received the creepiest and most hilarious message from a stranger.

Apple’s beautiful airdrop feature allows you to send things to any other Apple user in the vicinity, which opens itself up to creating some weird situations.

A public transport jester, only known as Dan, decided to send Sydney, from Birmingham, the famous ‘Hi stranger’ video by artist, Kirsten Lepore.

Speaking to UNILAD, Sydney said:

Well I was on the train back from Bournemouth – where I was seeing a friend – going back to Birmingham, and I was sat on the train for about 2 hours when I got that AirDrop come through.

I literally was trying not to burst out laughing in front of this whole first class carriage which was full of businessmen.

Then I looked up from my phone and saw a guy, probably in his 20s, sat there giggling to himself and I just knew it had to be him.

I went to AirDrop him memes back but he’d turned his AirDrop off and I was gutted, but then when I walked off the train I saw him smile at me and I just thought it’s definitely you.

Sydney posted a screenshot of the Airdrop to Twitter, captioned:


Speaking about the reaction it got, she continued:

I expected it to get like two likes but it got a few more so I was surprised haha, also I didn’t expect anyone to care and people actually replied.

I think it’s because it’s not something that usually happens in people’s everyday lives and it’s so unexpected, especially on a train.

Here’s the fantastically creepy, yet self-affirming video:

Hi Stranger

I have no words. Just watch and Kirsten Lepore

Hi Stranger – a stop motion cartoon – was created last year by Kirsten Lepore, and it includes a softly-spoken naked man speaking self-affirming words.

The video went viral and the creator said her aim was to ‘create a little character who has pillow talk directly with the viewer’.

Lepore told Inverse:

I mean, creepy is fine. That wasn’t my intention, but I get it. I was definitely going for uncomfortable, especially inciting uncomfortable laughter.

I wanted people to go, ‘What the heck is this guy?’ during the first half and then have their emotions shift in the second half. It becomes intimate, which I know can be unsettling for people at first.

In response to the video, Sydney wanted to respond with a Toy Story meme saying: ‘What the heck’.

As a message to the mystery guy, Sydney said:

Thank you for brightening my day and making me laugh ahah, and please follow me on twitter or Instagram so that I can send memes back to you!

I hope I have a Dan on my next train journey to brighten my day with memes!
