This video was a social experiment carried out by two guys to test how the people on the streets would react if they saw a man crutches trip and fall on the street.
The video starts out pretty well, people rush to his assistance every single time he falls, helping him up and making sure he isn’t hurt. He does the same thing again and again in what appears to be different places, and every time, someone or the other is there to help him.
You must be thinking, “oh, that wasn’t as bad as I’d expected?” But wait, there’s more. Halfway through the video, people’s response changes. Now when he falls down, no one comes to his aid. Even when he is seen rolling around the ground in pain, nobody stops to help him up. They just walk on by without a second glance.
So, what changed, between the first part of the video and the second? Watch the video to find out!
Although we all know it, we still do it. And that is to judge a book by its cover. As the guys in the video say, we must be the ones to instill the change we wish to see in this world, so SHARE this video with your friends and family!
