The YouTube channel NorniTUBE tried an experiment on the streets of France and the results may make you sad.

An actor dressed in tatters coughed, fell down on the street and asked for help. He received none.

Later, the actor dressed in a suit went out and did the same. Watch as the people rush to his aid.

As the video description on YouTube says, “I hope this video will make you want to help anyone. Regardless of appearance. It speaks for itself.”
