Commuters were given a boost at King's Cross station after being welcomed by flamboyant TikTok superstar and Greeters Guild founder Troy Hawke spreading his signature positive affirmations and vibrant cheer.
In a bid to take the sting out of the journey to work, Troy and his team took to King's Cross station offering words of encouragement and Japanese sweets to put a spring in the step of the morning commuters.
Greeting workers with his trademark quips, one commuter admitted "it's the nicest welcome she had ever had on her morning commute, especially on hump day."
Speaking after the stunt, carried out by Sony Pictures, to mark the home entertainment release of Bullet Train, Troy, otherwise known as Milo McCabe, said: “Commuters were treated to a double whammy of bespoke compliments and surprisingly tasty on brand treats, neither of which they expected (or believe they needed).
“Both landed magnificently.”
Commuting to work is the most stressful part of the day, according to research
It comes after research found almost half of the 2,000 adults polled said their commute is the most stressful part of their day.
And 41 per cent need a mood booster when travelling into work.
But 45 per cent went as far as to say they worry about their commute, while two thirds are left feeling anxious by the journey.
It also emerged more than half of those polled, via OnePoll, need to de-stress once they get on their train - by listening to music, calling a friend, loved one, or family member, and catching up on a TV show.
