Josh Gordon and Danny Gonzalez, two advertising students at Miami Ad School in Brooklyn, have created the “Party Box Project,” in which they “take gross newspaper boxes and turn them into parties.”
It’s a pretty silly idea, but a fun one, and anyways, what is college for if not being hopelessly idealistic, right? The duo documents the Party Box Project on their Tumblr, keeping track of the different locations where they’ve transformed an ordinary newspaper box into a party, in a box. In the video above, Gordon and Gonzalez can be seen packing a party box full of tinsel, lights, beads, beer, a musical card, and other assorted party goods. The project seems to be gaining some attention, and was recently featured in popular street art blog, Vandalog.
If you’re walking down the street in New York and you see a newspaper box with a purple lightning bolt sticker on it, chances are it’s a Party Box. So open it up and get the party started. It’s the most fun you can hope for from a newspaper box, now that The Onion has ceased publishing print editions.
