The TTC- Toronto’s over-crowded, under-funded public transit system brings out the worst in every Torontonian. A group of ukulele strumming musicians sensed that something needed to be done to break commuters out of their monotonous robotic routines.
“Project Ukulele Gangsterism” was inspired by the idea that while some pursue happiness, others create it. Hoping to provide commuters with a windfall of happiness, the group performed at various subway stations during rush hour. Belting “Have an Awesome Day” the gang of acoustic ukulele players provided Torontonians with a bit of lighthearted fun. The group immediately lifted people’s moods and illustrated that a small-scale idea can go a long way. Hopefully the TTC continues to get more pop-up projects like this!
