Hopscotch | Dirty Data | Cut


  • *sighs with joy* ah, humanity

  • I love humans some times

  • this is why I love CUT studios

  • lol there's one of these on my campus. always feels like I'm the only one that hops (canada, ontario)

  • cute to see people from all walks of life and backgrounds play.

  • I love when that one single person did the hopscotch and then the two people walking the opposite way smiled and gave them a thumbs up

  • I wonder what the stats would’ve been if there were two that faced opposite each other? Like I feel that people were less inclined to play if they were walking from 10 to 1 than if they started at 1? Awesome video anyway :)

  • I’m crying hahaha this made me smile

  • 1:38 😂 why is that me

  • This got me smiling at my laptop like a fool.

  • I would've played.

  • Here in Norway the pattern is a little different, it's 11211 and a longer 11211211 with circles at the end (1 is one foot, 2 is both feet). If you mangaged to get the stone into the furthest circle of the longer pattern, you were the hero of the group for the rest of the day :)

  • Those 129 are my favorite kind of people

  • I would’ve done it

  • I love how some play then continue walking like nothing happened

  • I'd hopped on it!! I love to play an have a great sense of humor. Loved watchin this

  • Did anyone else play snail more than hopscotch?

  • No one every really grows up fully^^

  • Did they really count each person

  • Those awkward pauses really get to me -.-

  • Most of these people were with friends or in groups maybe its sort of a social thing idk

  • This is so pure. I love it!

  • Play time is necessary. This made me smile.

  • I would play it.

  • 2:01 I loved watching that person play! It made me giggle and smile ear to ear 💕

  • Can you give me the music please?

  • I don't know why this made me so happy

  • I would totally play

  • If I wasn't with friends, I would subtly play it. I would walk in the squares, but to other people it would just look like my stride function.exe malfunctioned If I was with friends I would go all out

  • those 1,058 people are cowards

  • yeahh.... we're kids

  • Hello yeah?!!!!

  • Y’all know I’d be the one doing it 15 times in a row

  • All the the ones that walked by are boring people

  • I would

  • I would play!

  • I don’t get the point of this but either way it was cool

  • I play hopscotch on the tile pavements even where there are no outlines 😂😂😂

  • 124/1053 people walking the street are children like me

  • Love how some put a lil twist into it 😂👏🏽

  • 1:38 this is so me

  • Genuinely cheered me up so much 😁

  • dude I would be playing for HOURS

  • I love this video! It's so cute watching people play little kid games, idk why

  • Man I haven’t played hopscotch in so long

  • It would have been cool if they would have put this as a 10 hour live video

  • We all have a child inside us. It’s just that some people aren’t cool enough to let it out 😎

  • I would!

  • I legit just did this in store 5 below and I was shook at how many awkward and weird stares I got when I did the hopscotch. 😂

  • Why did more men play then women? Lol

  • Someone had to count all this

  • At around 2:00 montage, that would be great for a Target add

  • I really enjoyed watching this idk why

  • Why did this make me happy

  • If this was secret filming they would have had to bleep out faces

  • How do people walk without looking down? I would’ve seen it at least

  • when the construction worker played omg so wholesome

  • 1053 boring people

  • This is a good video to start my morning 😊


  • This made me super happy for whatever reason

  • this video just proves that we should take time to be silly every once in a while in our busy lives

  • Who else expected the pigeon in the beginning to do ot

  • I was walking home from work one day, i seen hopscotch on the side of the road and some kids walked away, the next thing i knew i was playing hopscotch. I cant resist my brain just tells me to do it

  • The couple (im assuming) at 2:37 is too cute

  • sad some people chose not to play

  • This is so interesting! And watching it made me happy haha

  • Silly little humans

  • honestly this made my day

  • thats only 12%

  • 2:37 gOaLS aF

  • How many of those 129 were construction? They seem like people to chill with.

  • its returned!

  • Someone must of had to of gone through all ten hours of footage...

  • Aww!😊😍☺

  • So approx. 12% of people played

  • Stay away from a random hopscotch on the sidewalk, you could get secretly filmed

  • How to tell who is a fun person or in a good mode

  • aww that made me so happy. do more experiments like this!!

  • this is the best video i watched today

  • 129 yes/ 1,058 no :(

  • can i just be friends with all those people that did jump??

  • Seeing that a lot of these people were construction/maintenance workers made me so happy.

  • кто эти ущербные, которые поставили дизлайки?

  • 2:11 is me.

  • Would definitely play... Unless I am sick and near death or 3HRS late to a meeting ☺. Is that too childish..

  • Never lose the child inside ☺️

  • Does anyone know the music in this ?

  • You can tell that the people walking by wanted to try lol

  • The man is 1:50 is so adorable?? Like I really want to hang with him

  • ❤ i miss being a child

  • Pretty sure a few knew the cameras were there though, especially the couple at 2.36. She looks directly at it several times.

  • i love the couple one, wearing the same black outfit :D

  • This put a big dumb smile on my face hahaha

  • I would definatly play it

  • Aahhh i miss playing this. If i was there i would totally use my sick moves!

  • I love how people of all ages played it :)

  • So about 11%.
