My new video about talking to strangers in America

Postby Winston » February 26th, 2009, 11:08 pm

Hi all,

Check out these video clips of my friend trying to talk to strangers in public in America. He sent them to me and I found them very revealing and reflective of what I've been saying about my own experience. So I put them together and made a little promo video for my site. Check it out. It's pretty sad huh? What do you think?

PS - I used the soundtrack of the Batman movie Dark Knight as the background during the slides.

so true. It's definitely different in Germany, at least in Bavaria. That's not to say that you won't get people who will respond like that but that there are so many more people won't respond like THAT.

I think it's probably the crime and the weirdos we have, but it may just be a clickish behavioral pattern that is instilled in people from high school.

I read an article on the internet that said studies have shown that the poorer a country is, the more friendlier the people are. That explains a lot! As far the cliquishness of Americans, I believe that may start in high school and continues on throughout ones life. God forbid you socialize with people you don't know! You are supposed to stay within your social circles! :roll:

Is it possible to reupload the original video you posted? It's been removed from youtube.

I agree with deX. I wondered why it was removed? Feminists?
