Sandy has spent quite a lot of his life on the streets of Austin, Texas. He’s looking to get everything in order and on track now but he’s still very interested in homelessness issues. So him and Joseph Costello from YouTube pranksters Quiet Assassins got together to perform a social experiment. Clean cut, Sandy would don a business suit and ask people for change. What would happen? Would he fare any better than usual? And what happens when he asks for a quarter from a homeless who’s not in on the experiment…?
This is pretty eye opening. Watch and learn:
That first part was quite uplifting, wasn’t it? It’s just a shame people reacted as they did in the second part…
