A video about the project made by 7Up shows him driving through the streets of Buenos Aires and delivering books to young and old alike. His only demand – that they promise to read what he’s given them. “My missions are very dangerous,” the artist jokes in a video about his project. “I attack people in a very nice and fun way.

There is nothing 'bizarre' about this. To refer to Mr Lemesoff's creation in this way is to demean him, his creation and his intentions. An edit of the article would be appropriate.

I need one of these. I need my money for food and necessities so I have no money left to buy more books.
