Rumble / Social ExperimentsEverybody has by now heard about Josh Paler Lin, the crazy Asian prankster on YouTube. Josh has accumulated more than 2.7 million subscribers (and counting). He has hit fame in a big way with his "How Does A Homeless Man Spend 100$" video which was viewed more than 30 million times in less than 3 weeks. He used to be a background dancer in music videos, including the video for "Teach Me How to Dougie" and now he is an aspiring actor and entrepreneur.

This video records the newest social experiment Josh has set up. The goal is for all of us to see how would random people on the street react if a person accidentally drops a winning lottery ticket. The scenario consists of several phases: Josh approaches the tested subject holding a lottery ticket. He wants to scratch it but has no coin and asks one from the person tested. Then, in front of the person, he scratches the ticket and reveals a win of $25,000. What luck, right? No, actually, the lottery ticket is fake and specially made for the purpose of this experiment. Acting as if he is leaping of joy, Josh distances himself from the tested subject and drops the ticket on the ground as if by accident.

Can you imagine what comes next? Can you presume the reaction of the people tested? Do you think he is playing pranks on these people or is it a genuine social experiment situation?

We do not want to spoil it for you. Watch this video and draw your own conclusions.
