REMOVING LOVE LOCKS FROM BRIDGES & STATUES (Honest Guide)


Prague is a beautiful city, historical city. Unfortunately, there are things things that destroy it for example graffiti, garbage, of a new things that is called a love lock. People by these locks on the street here for 20 EUROS and then they go to the Charles Bridge and hang it on there. Why? Please, if you want to show love to the city, do not destroy our cultural heritage by putting up your lock. Because, here’s a secret, it’s not going to be there forever. (music) People want to take the locks as souvenirs so here you go, if anybody wants to take a lock Try to, try to find your name. The chances that you’ll find your name are pretty high Souvenir form Prague. -Yes, but I can’t find my name. -Your name? (laughs) There was actually a case in Paris where they had so many love locks on one of these bars, that it actually collapsed. And this one, there’s a lot of them. I mean we probably cleared like 5%. And I can not lift it. So, it’s only a matter of time before this thing would collapse. So many broken relationships. I’m sorry. So that’s the last one, man. Or is it? No chance. Yeah, I think we underestimated our powers. But after 3 hours, we managed to cut all of these locks. Actually, this is what we got. Ugh. We need more people. So, we have this idea we can actually take these locks because they are metal into scrap metal and get some money for it, buy some more pliers, and finish cleaning the bridge. Well, good morning, we actually only got one extra friend to help us clean the bridge form the love locks. But, we do get extra pliers so if somebody wants to join us and help us clean this mess we’ll be more than happy. Let’s do it! 4 hours later and this is the result only on one piece because we were just unable to clean all the locks. Our hands hurt so much, you have no idea so this is a huge, huge respect to people who have to clean this every once in a while so please don’t think we are the only ones destroying love. We’re not. People do it regularly. so we just felt like helping them out and the money we get form the metal, we’re going to send it to some good causes. The main reason why we did this is because people not only put the love locks on these bars or on these fences but they put it on like historical places historical stuff, right on the bridge. Let me show you. So, that’s St. John Nepomuk, famous guy 5 stars above his head, that’s how you recognise him. But, people destroyed this little statue by putting love locks on it. This is what it looked like. So we cleaned it. 130 kilos of love locks on this. Why would people do that? So that is what set us up to, you know, clean it up. So people can touch it. Nobody knows why you touch it, because tour guides tell them to. We don’t know how much this is in weight but the previous time we were here yesterday, it was 222 kilos, spot on. So there are tonnes of metal, hanging on these bars So they need to be cleaned. So please, please, please I beg you I ask you. Ah, sorry sorry I’m sorry I’ll move but there are literally tonnes of metal hanging on these bars so eventually they would fall down. That’s hwy they need to be cut off. And, in terms of money, this lock in that street, costs 500 Crowns That’s 20 Euros. People, guys, there are better ways to spend your money than 20 Euros for a lock . Also, mankind has already invented something to lock your love. it’s called marriage. So guys please come to Prague but please, I kindly ask you, I beg you, respect it. Don’t put love locks, don’t do graffiti. look how it looks. This is all tourist work No somebody has to fix that. It’s horrible Leave Prague in a better state than you found it. Not the other way around. Because then there will be no Prague for you to seek and visit. Right, I’ll see you next week. And the Czech word at the end is “zameck”, a lock “zameck”, lock. Or a small one is “zamecek” small lock. “Zamecek” “zameck” “Zameck” “zamecek”

  1. This is kinda sad because people lock those locks and throw away the key meaning there love is forever that usually do that after weddings

  2. “Please don’t think that we are the only ones destroying love people do it regularly we are just helping them out” 🤣🤣

  3. Dude the same here in Paris , there is the one place you mentionned , but another at the place called Sacre Cœur there is way too much lockers there

  4. He is right.
    You fucking dumb tourist destroy everything.
    If you want to lock someone just ,,marry him,, not put a lock which you wouldnt even remember the day after.

  5. Some dumbasses eve started putting them on the bars of a small unknown bridge in a very unkown place in Halkidiki in Greece. I hate them because they just ruin the place! It's just a beautiful bridge by the sea with a beautiful view and you can't enjoy it because there are dumbasses who either take selfies, talk in the middle of the beodge for no reason or these live locks! Fuck these people!

  6. That’s so rude. People do that to show love to each other not for u to cut them off u probably cut mine off because I put mine and my bfs on there asshole 🙄🙄🖕🏻🖕🏻

  7. You are my hero! Seriously, these locks are even worse than graffiti. I’m so glad you are doing this.

    When I’m in Hawaii I try to knock down as many of those stacked rocks as possible so the beaches and hills look natural without a constant reminder of all the A-holes who wanted you to know they’ve been there. These locks are the same kind of thing and are all over Europe.

  8. When there are people from your city that are supporting this kind of stuff-putting licks on the bridge, then why are you removing those locks instead of going to those people that are selling locks to the visitors with the exact same purpose…

  9. 24k likes aren’t wrong but also not right
    Because it’s wrong to cut downs people’s memory but it is also right to keep the city beautiful and not break any historical stuff

  10. OK I understand that it’s for the sake of like the people who live there and like to make sure it doesn’t break or anything and no one gets hurt OK I understand that it’s for the sake of like the people who live there and like to make sure it doesn’t break or anything and no one gets hurt but their love locks. LOVE LOCKS! Do I need to say it louder like come on those are things people do to like show their love for each other it’s just kind a messed up to Cut them off

  11. This is only sad because you said that if you didn’t it would fall but nothing last forever man you should have just let the locks stay

  12. Girl:LETS HANG ONE UP TO SIMBOLISE OUR LOVE LASTING FOREVER

    him:NOPE I DONT CARE IM REMOVING IT

    Girl:I DONT WANT TO STAY WITH YOU IM BREAKING UP WITH YOU

  13. Dude is it possible to rent you for cleaning up our Rhine River Bridge in Cologne? I'll leave you a picture to your enjoyment: https://www.bento.de/images/00000000-0003-0004-0000-000002583785_w900_fpx50_fpy50.jpg
    I guess you better bring all your removing tools! You maybe have already figured it out: I totally love what you do. This love lock shit has become like an epidemic plague over all big cities in Europe. I cant understand people beeing such an ignorant fool doing this or scrabbling some useless shit on historic walls or any building. But over 24k thumps down to your video sadly shows all the stupidness of the humans we have to deal with every day.

  14. When I was travelling in Freiburg in Germany, I saw for the first time this "love locks" and thought to myself, the bridge can be so much preetier without them

  15. I don’t agree cuz my dad put one on there and u have probably taken it off and broken it of u took it off and it fell in the river

    I’m not trying to stop u I just don’t agree at all

  16. I have seven locks for myself in
    Paris
    Berlin
    Canary islands
    Alicante
    Prague
    Copenhagen
    Egypt

    I just locked them so whenever I come back to one of these countries, I will find it.

    All off them are in secret places so no one can find them, I hope so… 😂
    And I will keep doing that to every country I visit
