PASSERS-BY in Malaga received a little extra love from a Free Hugs campaign.

Virginia Salas Kastilio, a self-proclaimed “happiness researcher,” and her team hit the streets of Malaga with one goal: to give strangers hugs for more than 20 seconds.

Some seemed wary, with a young girl looking hesitantly up at her father before giving a one-shoulder hug, but others approached the snugglers with open arms.

Kastilio described the experiment as a remedy to the ‘disconnect’ caused by social media.
