Eyebombing: Using goggly eyes to bring objects to life

Have you ever felt like inanimate objects are watching you?

Well they might be - thanks to a growing movement called 'eyebombing'.

The idea is to stick removable goggly eyes onto objects like parking meters and pipes, so they almost seem human. Eyebombing is now gaining popularity on social media with the aim of trying to bring a little light relief to the world.

BBC News went to Copenhagen to meet Kim Nielsen and Peter Dam, founders of eyebombing.com.

Video production: Neil Meads

Stop/Start is a series of video features for the BBC News website which follows both new trends that are beginning and old traditions that are coming to an end.
