What would YOU do if you stumbled across a murder? Elevator prank captures people's reactions to a fake killing

What would you do if your elevator’s doors opened to reveal one man choking the life out of the other? That’s what the minds behind Thinkmodo wanted to find out when they faked a murder in an elevator to see just how people would react.

‘What would you do if you walked into a murder in progress?’

‘Two guys asked themselves the same question and staged a murder in progress inside an elevator. Hidden cameras recorded people’s reactions. What would you do?’

It’s a classic fight-or-flight test.

Some people immediately jump into the fray and try to save the man being strangled. Others just walk away. Some seem too shocked to move. And one one sees it as the perfect photo op.

Besides being a great, living Rorschach test, the video is a publicity stunt for the upcoming film ‘Dead Man Down,’ an upcoming gangland thriller.

And while we hope we’d know what you do, this may be the sort of answer that you only discover when you’re truly presented with the situation and are forced to act without thinking.
Hopefully if you do reach for your cell phone it’s to call the cops, not take a picture.
