Hugging 100 strangers for National Hug Day... 20 years ago - Evening Throwback

Going back to 1997, when hugging was normal (but hugging strangers wasn't). #k5evening

We may not be able to give a lot of hugs now, so instead, we at KING 5's "Evening" are bringing back an oldie but goodie. Our reporter Jim Dever goes outside of the office to find 100 strangers and give them hugs. Who challenged him to do this? We don't remember... but it's sure to put a smile on your face!
