Usually the Midnight Movie has a subject that's tied to Los Angeles in some way, even faintly. Sometimes it's a local band from days gone by, or a short film, or even a trailer.

Tonight we present to you something that has nothing at all to do with our fine city, other than the fact that if someone walked around with a sign offerring "free hugs", the same situation might befall him as what happened to "Juan Mann" in this clip.

Enjoy this moving and interesting video that seems to be giving the Aussie band Sick Puppies, whose music is featured here, a huge burst of popularity down under, as well as all over the web and YouTube.
