The News Minute | November 12, 2014 | 06:05 pm IST Another social experiment , another video showing us how some people behave in real situations. A video put up by serial entrepreneur Stephen Zhang shows an actress, fake drunk with a bottle of alcohol in her hand roaming around the streets of Hollywood Boulevard approaching men for help. Almost all of the men in the video help her out, however , they steer her towards the option of taking her home instead of a bus stop, which is where she initially intends to go. It is not very clear from the video if the scene has been scripted. However, the comments on this social experiment are far from inspiring. While some of the opinions faulted men for their actions, others indicated that the girl was wrong to put herself in a situation which she knew would be dangerous. Quite a common scenario, but the possibilities are endless. From the comments, and from public perception, the general idea is that girls are putting themselves in a dangerous situation by allowing themselves to be a soft target. But does that warrant anybody to take advantage? Some comments have said that since she asked for directions , the onus of their reactions is on her. However, other views say that many a time the best way to help a drunk girl is to get her a cab and send her to own home, safe and sound. So, what would you do if a completely drunk woman came up to you someday?
