On April Fools’ Day, hundreds of people took to the streets of Budapest, to take part in the ‘Silly Walk’ parade that was inspired by the British comedy group Monthy Python.
Even the BBC wrote about the fun that took place on Monday, April 1st in the centre of Budapest: hundreds of people gathered to do their own ‘silly walk’.
The Budapest Silly Walk has been organised for the second time this year, and it was mostly advertised on Facebook. The organisers decided to initiate this form of get-together so that people can forget about their daily problems for an hour or so.
If you are not familiar with the concept of the ‘silly walk’, what you need to know in short is that it was created by the comedy group Monty Python as part of their comedy series in the 1970s. In one of the episodes, we see actor John Cleese headed to work, walking in a rather unusual and comical manner to the ‘Ministry of Silly Walks’.
