A Toothy Stock Footage Compilation Featuring People Who Turn and Smile at the Camera

In “Turnsmile“, stock footage company Dissolve has created a toothy compilation featuring people who repeatedly break the fourth wall by turning and smiling at an invisible audience.

They turn … they see you … and they smile. Even through a screen, these gestures make us feel acknowledged, special, likable — and more open to the smiler’s message. No wonder the turn-and-smile has long been a favorite of advertisers. So sit back and bask in the feels as your presence gets celebrated over and over again in this hypnotic reel of happy recognition. Minus the sales pitches.
