A guy in a crowded outdoor area starts pantomiming leisurely activities. He begins by reading and turning the pages of a book. He pours and sips a cup of coffee. He eats, showers, and dresses. He opens a door and steps outside it. He walks. He smiles, he waves, he points and gazes. He even steps aside to allow someone to pass him. As his movements grow more exaggerated, the crowd takes notice. Someone tosses a few coins at him. A voice calls out, “WHAT ARE YOU DOING…?” The guy calls back, “I’M AIRBNBING!” He laughs to himself and walks away from the crowd.
The guy deliberately engages a large audience. In his mime routine, he tells a story of going beyond the comfort of the accommodations to greet the world outside.
