London Just Cured The Monday Morning Blues With One Colorful Commute

A refreshing commute.

Monday morning commutes are notoriously, well, terrible. 

You never manage to get out of bed on time, the weekend is now days away, your umbrella breaks in the pouring rain, and there isn't enough coffee in the world to keep your eyes open. 

But in London, this morning's commute got a colorful, joyful makeover.


Spark Your City, a movement that aims to spark joy into our everyday lives, created a beautiful rainbow road to cheer up commuters on an otherwise gloomy Monday morning.

Together with creative Gemma Cairney, a former BBC Radio 1 presenter who "knows how it feels to be one of London's earliest commuters," the London Bridge transformed into a work of art that successfully invited commuters to love Mondays.

On Instagram, Cairney described the art as "400 metres of a rainbow to attempt Monday smiles."

Looks like the plan worked:

According to their website, Spark Your City is on a mission to transform cities into "living playgrounds," and along with 20 "creative changemakers" like Cairney, and they will take on 50 cities around the world, including Paris, Milan, New York, and Miami.

So here's to a happy Monday.
