What do you do when no one is watching?
Two Italian men, Diego and Matteo, have dedictated their time to recording social experiments with real people and uploading them to YouTube. DM Pranks stages situations that extract a reaction from unsuspecting test subjects. Diego and Matteo wanted to see what people would do when a man fell in front of them. Would they help him up? Or, would they keep walking? The key factor in this experiment: The falling man was dressed either as a homeless man or a businessman.
With more than 150,000 views on YouTube, Homeless vs. Businessman: Falling has taken the human reaction experiment to the next level by showing how people are affected by appearance. A man who has fallen in front of them needs help getting up, but which man is more worthy of being helped? Diego and Matteo thought that everyone would be willing to help a fallen person, but the reactions they got from people proved otherwise.
