We all know that smoking is bad for adults –– but especially harmful for young children. However, what would you do if a child actually asked you to light a cigarette for him?
In the video below, several people were forced to ask themselves this question recently after a hidden camera experiment by DennisCree.
As you’ll see, some people refused, some got angry, but some people actually agreed to light the young boy’s cigarette for him, even as a police officer walks past! Then, towards the end of the video, the child encounters a man who lost his voice box due to his smoking. It was an unexpected and powerful moment.
Speaking using his Electrolarynx, the man gives the child an eye-opening lesson about the dangers of smoking cigarettes. It is unlikely he will ever want to touch another cigarette for as long as he lives after encountering a man.
What do you think of this social experiment? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!
