Social Experiment: Homeless Drug Addict Vs. Homeless Father


Who would you help between a homeless father and a homeless alcoholic?

This was the social experiment that YouTuber Coby Persin took to the streets of New York City with his latest video.

The man spent some time under cover as a homeless man holding a sign asking for money to buy drugs and alcohol, collecting a quite surprising amount of donations.

After that, Persin swapped the signed with one where he was asking for money to help his family, and held it together with a young actress playing his daughter.

As you can see in the vide the final outcome is quite shocking.
