We’ve all been there: you need a ride and for whatever the reason you can’t drive yourself. You pull out your phone, open the Lyft app, then order your ride. You’re instantly connected to a driver who is using his or her own car guaranteed to be newer than a year 2000 model, and the driver comes to pick you and take you wherever you want to go. When your ride is over, you get to rate the driver, and the driver gets to rate you. Now, imagine you’re looking for a ride somewhere in San Francisco and nice bearded gentleman is your driver.
He asks you some questions, kind of like you do when you ride with someone you don’t know. Maybe he asks who your favorite football team is. Maybe he can spot that you’re a natural born singer. Maybe he says that he would like to be an actor. Information is shared between the two of you.
At some point the man stops and says he needs to stretch. Do you mind? The next thing you know you’re dancing with this strange but very friendly Lyft driver by the side of a road next to park.
Is this some sort of hidden camera prank? Apparently those people who got a ride that day didn’t think so. They got a lift, and some got to show off their dance skills and even sing for Jerry Rice!
