Dancing Traffic Light Man Keeps Everyone Safe and Smiling

The people at Smart have created another installment to their viral campaign and this one involves pedestrian and a dancing red man.
Last July, they positioned a unique traffic light system for pedestrians wanting to cross a major street in Lisbon, Portugal. The traffic light looked like any other traffic light but just before everyone started getting bored of waiting for it to turn green, the red figure starts busting the grooviest moves.
Where does the red man get its groove? From on-the-spot volunteers, of course.
The dancing man light was tethered to a giant mock-up of a traffic light built nearby. The giant installation had a big LED screen outside and the inside housed a set-up that let you choose music and recorded dance moves in real-time. A live video feed also displayed people’s reactions to the dances.
According to the video, the dancing traffic light made 81% more people stop and wait before crossing.
