"When we got there, there were two guys sitting on the bench," Rabchenuk told BuzzFeed. "As we were talking, another couple came by and we all started chatting. I got out my chalk, my girlfriend wrote the 'BANGARANG' and the Ferngully line."

Rabchenuk told BuzzFeed, "That one scene on the bench is arguably one of the best scenes of any movie made in the last 50 years. It's so simple and straightforward, it just hits you right in the gut."

A bunch of strangers all had the same idea to memorialize the late Robin Williams, and now they hope that others will do the same.

"I just hope people will leave thoughts about not only Robin Williams as an actor, and their favorite memories of him and his characters, but also thoughts about that particular scene, and how it speaks to people," Rabchenuk said.

Rest in peace.
