Airbnb #OneLessStranger combined with Not My Arms Challenge

By Daniel Nilsson on February 14, 2015

2014 I decided to rent out the extra room in my apartment and I joined Airbnb. For you who know me, I love to travel and I truly believe it gives you new perspectives of life and is good for health. I could not help myself from getting engaged and making sure my guests had a really good time. After a few months I could call myself an Aibnb Super Host.

In January I got a message from Airbnb that they chosen me for their #OneLessStranger campaign, a social experiment to reduce the number of strangers in the world, one kind, inventive and endearing act at a time. More info at

I loved the idea and I contacted my friends Jack and Eskil that just recently started a YouTube channel. We spent several hours trying to come up with brilliant ideas and suddenly we found it. We decided to combine the Airbnb #OneLessStranger campaign with the not my arms challenge. The twist: Not My Arms Challenge with a complete stranger at the train station of Gothenburg. We had so much fun recording this video and we even had an audience watching us and laughing.
