A new viral video campaign from the UK is taking aim at loneliness.

The video which has been viewed over 15 million times sees young children approach strangers sitting by themselves in a bid to strike up conversation...

People were quick to comment their stories...

"My mother talked to everyone... In elevators, in lines and shopping in stores. She got stories, recipes and saw pictures of grandchildren and pets. It is a true talent and a blessing." one woman wrote. 

But others pointed out that simply enjoying a coffee by yourself doesn't make you lonely...

"That's sweet. However, as much as I do love my time spent with friends, sometimes I like to sit and enjoy a coffee, a meal, or a movie with just myself. Doing these things alone doesn't make me a lonely person." wrote another.

What do you make of the new viral video?
