I’ve enjoyed some “What Would You Do” segments, but my enjoyment has been limited by how hamhanded and over-the-top they are (and this example is no exception). But at their best, they entertain by showing people in everyday locations acting wonderfully on the spur-of-the-moment.
This “What Would You Do” segment is worth posting because of the last customer shown, whose reaction is so perfect it would be hard to make it believable in a work of fiction. I also enjoyed seeing the two actresses clearly having to go beyond the boundaries of what they rehearsed.
On other WWYD segments, they usually include interviews with witnesses who agreed with the offensive behavior. In this case, no one is shown agreeing with the hairdresser criticizing the white woman – I suspect because they couldn’t find anyone who took that view.
I can’t find the post, but I recall having previously posted this WWYD video, comparing how passerbys react to white and black teens vandalizing a car.
