Language Warning: Some angry participants let a few choice words fly when they find out about the twist.
The fictional Boss Quoss, an openly gay rapper, hired a bunch of extras to lend him a hand in making his latest video. They took off their shirts, danced close to each other and even participated in a choreographed dance that was obviously just the "jerk-off" motion but none of them suspected a thing.
When the big reveal happened some people walked away from the set, others stood behind Boss Quoss. A number of extras were very nice and offered words of support before continuing with the shoot.
Here's the actual music video for those of you waiting to see the finished product:
For anyone who loathes those horrible YouTube "social experiments," today is a glorious day.
Adrian Gee filmed a "social experiment" where he pretended to be a blind man to see if people would be dishonest when he asked for change. But the video was found to be a total lie when actors who said they were hired to be in the video came forward.
In a delightfully cringe-worthy video above, a journalist from TodayTonight called him out in a TV interview. Gee continued to lie and say the video was real, and then ended the interview abruptly.
But he did have something to say in a lengthy YouTube comment where he basically says that he lied, but it was all to troll TV networks.
I came up with the idea and thought it'd turn out to be an interesting video to shoot IF I could get a just a few people to take my $50. I contemplated on going to a bad area (which could be considered as 'The Hood' for anyone reading from the U.S) to shoot to get the reactions I needed but I took a second thought and thought to myself 'Why risk going out in 'The Hood' to lose some cash when I could just grab a few actors and get the shots that would be needed' So I decided to try it out and put a casting call out for actors to shoot a social experiment. I asked a few actors that applied and asked them if they were down and a majority of them were interested and enthused about the idea.
After the video was up I have had a majority of the actors involved message me saying they loved the video it wasn't until I accepted invitations from the media for TV interviews that is when all of this went south. I had the top 3 TV networks in Australia basically fighting over me pressing for a TV interview. Initially I wasn't going to do any but then I reconsidered and thought to myself 'Why not?' as most of the stuff they put out to air are all lies what difference will this make. After all this is just a silly YouTube video that's intended to make you think. I basically 'trolled' everyone through the interviews via Channel 7 & Channel 9 (Channel 10 were smart and pretty much knew the video was staged and decided to back out from the interview).
SUUUUUREEEEE...Adrian Gee. How about this?
You were caught in a lie and your other dumb videos are probably fake, too.
If a blind guy asked you for $5 in change, but handed you a $50, what would you do? What if you found out the viral social experiment video about it you just wasted 4 minutes on was totally scripted?
Self described aspiring actor/model Adrian Gruska posted this video of "The Real Blind Man Honesty Test (Social Experiment)" where he pretended to be blind and asked people to make change to see if they'd be honest. The video has over a million and a half views, but all the money stealing a-holes featured in it are actually actors.
Gruska posted an ad online recruiting actors for a "social experiment/skit" on October 30. Three days later, he posted the blind man honesty test.
Gruska makes no mention of the fact that the video is scripted in his YouTube post, and in fact feigns shock at the outcome: "I was quite surprised as to the amount of people who basically stole off a blind man, absolutely ridiculous."
As Abe Lincoln always said, you never trust anything on the internet.
What started off as a social experiment to see if anyone would stop and help became something completely different when the only man who stopped to help turned out to have recently been the victim of a devastating house fire.
Hammy TV was just looking for some good deeds and what they got was Eric, a man who suffered greatly in a fire this past June, where he lost all his belongings and received second and third degree burns over 50 percent of his body.
The YouTuber was a little overwhelmed with Eric's story and, since he was the only one to stop and help, replaced some of what he lost in the fire.
While we have already learned that the "Drunk Girl in Public" video was a fake (is anything even real anymore?), now the actress hired to play said drunk girl is also speaking out.
Jennifer Box has released a video apologizing for the stunt Monday, which she says was originally pitched to her as a "lighthearted prank show."
She said she never would have participated if she had known the damaging outcome of the video. But isn't forever being remembered as "that drunk girl in public on Hollywood Boulevard" a good enough reason to turn it down?
The men in the video recently spoke up about the prank to Inside Edition and the mastermind behind the entire debacle, Stephen Zhang, has made the original video private, which had racked up millions of views since it aired.
