This Man’s ‘Money Suit’ Experiment Could Change The Way You See Humanity
People will let their pride fly out the window while chasing a dollar.
This week, we got a prime example of human greed via a video experiment by YouTube sensation Coby Perskin.
Persin covered a suit jacket in dollar bills and walked the streets of Manhattan. He held up a sign that simply read, “Take what you need,” and people were free to indulge in response. The results will make you weep for mankind.

Sadly, the folks who took the money didn't look like the needed the money at all.
One suit-clad subject told Persin, “I don’t need it, but it’s free. Who wouldn’t take it?” A lady with a Louis Vuitton purse filled her bag with dollars. Likewise, another woman was thrilled to hit the jackpot: “I have a nail appointment tomorrow."
The only person who showed some self control was a homeless person, who probably needed the cash the most. The way the lady was taking the dollars for her nail appointment (who looked like she hasn't seen a hard days work in her life) made me sick.
If this is an example of what the majority of people would do in a situation like this, we need to do better across the board.

Wow. Humans truly do suck. Smh. That last guy had me in tears... Wtf is wrong with people?!
I saw this on Facebook!! Ahh it makes me so angry to see people being like this. And yeah, the one at the end made me cry too @ButterflyBlu I'm so sappy
lol don't feel bad! I'm a huge sap, too! <3 It was just amazing to see someone so selfless after all the selfish takers before him. :(
Isn't it crazy how we all strive for money, but the people that end up being kinder and more giving tend to be those will only a little? We should all strive to be like them :) esp. with Thanksgiving coming up @ButterflyBlu
