Describing the DISTRIKT is like sharing a meme (check this if you're confused). Cecil Adams from theStraightDope.com describes the concepts of memes as something that "is either really deep, or really, really obvious." On the first glance, you may get the joke.

Movement is the access point to create connection between humans. REAL connection, not the kind that's sold on a sponsored Instagram post.
