One TikTok account has been doing their own take on shouting messages at people from their car. Though far from being street harassment or catcalling, the La La Land Kind Café has been directing compliments and words of encouragement at passers-by instead.
The brand, which has cafés in California and Texas, has a mission to “normalise kindness”, and has been using its account on the shortform video platform to share a series of videos titled “Drive-By Kindness”.
In the first episode, posted in November last year, a female voice can be heard saying: “Excuse me, I just want to say you’re beautiful.”
As one of the men cups his head in his hands, the other replies: “You’re the most beautiful, thank you!”
