Social Experiment Shows Us Just How We Treat People In Need. It’s Eye-Opening.

Russia-based YouTubers Rakamakafo recently made a social experiment video to compare the difference between how Russian and American bystanders react when they see a complete stranger fall to the ground in pain.

They wanted to know if people from either country reacted differently, and if so, how much differently. The results were actually quite shocking when it comes to one of the countries. Watch and see which one.

Obviously there are a lot of different factors that could have contributed to the different reactions, from the location (touristy location vs busy city) to just one of the guys being a better actor and selling it more, but nonetheless that was an interesting little experiment that reminds us to always be more willing to lend a helping hand to our fellow man.
