What would you do if a stranger offered you money in the street? A recent social experiment suggests that you’d keep on walking; or as the video below shows on one occasion, run away.
Watch the social experiment here.
The experiment took place on the streets of London, Brighton and Manchester with a total of 600 people approached. Londoners were the most likely to turn down free money with three out of ten people accepting the offer. 40% of Mancunians pocketed the cash, while on the south coast 65% of Brightonians accepted the offer.
Breaking down the figures in terms of sex and age – women were slightly more inclined to accept the money than men (52% versus 48%); while those aged between 18 and 30 years old accounted for 70% of those who took the money.Reuse content
