Rumble / Social ExperimentsWelcome to another excellent social experiment , starred and directed by Josh Paler Lin. The goal of the experiment is not only to make us laugh, but as always in his videos, to make us think deeply and draw some very valid conclusions about human nature.

What happens when a seemingly rich dad and then a "poor" dad separately ask strangers for a couple of bucks to buy some baby food (while holding a baby). The results will shock you!

The fact stands that, essentially, no one is immune to the effects of money. However, watching experiments such as there enables us to see how good or bad our stereotypes are, how they modify our treatment of other people and what the repercussions are for the entire society. We hope that Josh managed to teach you something.

For those unbelievably few of you who still haven’t heard of Josh Paler Lin Known, the crazy Asian prankster on YouTube, he is the guy who has accumulated more than 2.7 million subscribers. His "How does a homeless man spend 100$" video 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.

Can you imagine being put under the same test as the people in this video? How would you have behaved? Share with us in the comment section.
