How's it going?
Going good.
It's decent.
Is that it?
So, I grew up in Russia.
I lived there from ages three to 15.
Ever since we moved to the US, I've always been confused by this question, how's it going?
Like, no one ever answers the question.
All right, I'm going to prove it to you.
How's it going?
Nothing.
How's it going?
What's up?
Not even a little detail.
How's it going?
How's it going?
Again, nothing.
How's it going?
I got this.
What does that mean?
How's it going?
How's it going?
He answered my, how's it going, with a how's it going.
So now that I've proved to you that nobody ever answers the question, how's it going, I'm going to actually take some time to sit down next to someone and see if we can have a genuine conversation.
How's it going, man?
How you doing?
Good, dude. Busy.
Yeah, it's been cra, I mean, it's been crazy.
How's it going?
Good?
Yeah, good thanks.
Cool.
Aw, this is my...
Nice to meet you.
Hi.
How's it going?
Hey.
How's your day?
Nice to meet you.
Good?
Good.
Yeah, I give up.
That was the most awkward thing I've ever experienced.
I thought it was going to be a video where I like, met all these people.
No, it's extremely uncomfortable.
It's awkward.
No one wants to talk about their day or like, open up their feelings.
So instead of putting myself through more awkward interactions, I'm going to go around with a microphone.
I'm going to see why people think no one answers the question, how's it going.
(cheerful electronic music)
Sarah, do you have time for an interview?
I...
Too late, we're gonna do it, so...
It's a one question interview.
How's it going?
It's going good.
Eh, it's all right.
How's it going with you?
It's good.
Good.
So how many times have you heard how's it going in the past week?
Everyday.
How many times have you answered it other than saying it's fine?
Never.
Why do you think no one ever answers the question, how's it going?
I just had this problem.
I was in LA and everybody was answering me.
You don't want to get too personal I guess.
I think it's because usually the answer is too depressing.
I mean, go to a therapist.
Nobody's ever going to say it's going bad.
I once tried changing how are you to are you good?
And everyone was like, don't I look okay?
Is there something wrong?
I hate when people, like if people were to really ask me that because it would like, uncork some deep s**t.
I never ask.
Oh, you never ask?
I just give like the head nod and if you give it back, then I know you're good.
I honestly think the world would be better if we just didn't talk to people at all.
What I'm realizing is that everyone at Buzzfeed hates interaction and is bitter and I'm the only one who cares about connecting with other human beings.
I guess I could get rid of how's it going completely.
My problem with how's it going is when people ask and immediately stop listening.
So how was your day?
It's good.
Ding!
(laughing)
So I'm currently editing this video and I just watched back all the footage.
Even though this video is silly and funny and it's not supposed to be serious, I feel like there's actually a pretty important lesson to be learned from this video.
I think there's something so important about listening and talking to the people around you because you never know who needs to be talked to or who wants to be heard or who has some problems that they need to share, so it's really important to listen and you should take the time to sit down
and talk to the people you care about and really ask people how's it going.
So if you guys feel like it,
in the comments below, just tell me how it's going.
