    The original




    and the extra



    With the exception of a few people, most of the guys were good sports about it. I do feel bad for some of the gay guys who were interested since it was a prank. I guess they didn't mind if they gave permission to be on film though. Thoughts?

    He probably got their numbers and hooked up with a few after the camera turned off. icon_wink.gif

    I laughed at the guy hitting on old/ugly guys saying they're his type, especially the old guy with the wife icon_lol.gif

    Maybe it's just me, but these kind of "social experiments" annoy me. icon_confused.gif

    exactly, agreed, I wouldn't want to be part of their 'social experiment' it's called harassment on the street and funny thing is when some people give them the fuck off stare they are the one getting offended and once I saw that the host shoved FU signs just because some people didn't hide their true feelings and just walked away

    These are just some money hungry attention whores

    Absolutely sophomoric with no redeeming value.

    Annoying maybe in that it exaggerates but it's really nothing but a compilation or condensing of what everyone pretty much does, experiment with the reactions of others based on our own being, and that in part is how we define ourselves to ourselves: this situation of how do others react to us as we act & say variously.

    As a social experiment it shows that on the one hand it might be okay for us to meet each other in non-artificial ways (not induced by imbibing or encouraged by the opportunity of proximity--i.e. in a known gayborhood or in a gay bar with everyone already wearing a label: hello my name is at least gay friendly--or encountered within the safety of apps or online forums.

    Where it fails is in its own artificiality of a false confidence in a few respects: being gay for play and playing gay, "risking" that exposure, those encounters under surveillance.

    What I found interesting, and I don't know if that's trusting or stupid, were the guys giving their numbers. I'd trick with a number without requiring dinner first, but to give him my number? I think I'd require at least some conversation before that.

    Interesting. Just because it's hard to initiate conversation with a guy you like, let alone ask for his number. Of course, the guy asking is totally detached from the outcome emotionally but still. Unless you're doing this in a gay bar, your odds are pretty damn low haha

    Interesting concept: "emotionally detached"???
    one man's "emotionally detached" is an other man's self confidence.


    --loved the African, clearly living the California lifestyle all the while condemning it.
    --also, the large black man looking to "experiment".

    I don't understand what the point of this "experiment" is supposed to be. Is some kind of hypothesis being tested? Is a pattern revealed? As the OP pointed out, it's really just a prank, not a social experiment.

    Being "detached from the outcome emotionally" is not the same as being "emotionally detached" because certainly you can be detached from any particular outcome emotionally due to other circumstance while still being a feeling person. If not, we wouldn't have nurses in hospitals, caring yet detached.

    I thought it was interesting and harmless. I love how laid back just about everyone was about it.

    "I just wanna make things clear, I'm like, romantically interested."

    "Yeah, me too"

    What a waste. They would have made such a hot pairing!

    It's generally the result of a prior situation. It would start out as a guy asking our girls vid. People would comment. Then theyd do a girl ask guy and progresses from there. Its usually motivated by fans.

    A good social experiment in my opinion was the blind trust one. A muslim man blindfolded himself and left his arms open. He held a sign saying "im muslim but I am not a terrorist. I trust you. Do you trust me?"

    I felt bad for that guy. He was genuinely interested just to get rejected. Hope the guy at least bought him lunch lol

    I'm no lawyer, but I'm sure that was a contract. He should have demanded specific performance!

    It is annoying as a prank but I was surprised at the number of positive responses and also at the number of rejections that were not hostile.

    From the outtakes video that was also there it seems that they got permission for using the shots. I wonder about the ones not used.

    Altogether a pretty flabby piece of work, but still interesting.

    Ugh I hate those "In the hood" prank videos so much.

    The only funny one is when they do the restroom pranks, and they throw lotion on under the stalls to make it look like they are cumming on people, other than that I hate those vids.

    They know people are gonna bait and watch them, and they use google adsense money to get rich off them Smh.
