What would you do if you found $200 laying on the ground?
Although many of us would like to say they would find the rightful owner and return it, it’s tough to truly tell how altruistic we’d be until placed in that situation.
To prove this, pranskter and social experiment conductor Robert Pinon of RiskyRob TV decided to leave a hefty wad of cash lying on the ground in a public setting—then roll the cameras, proving just how many people are truly spurred to do the right thing.
Time and time again, Pinon strategically drops the cash out of his pocket while pulling out his phone, pretending it’s an accident but hoping to catch a good Samaritan.
The first handful of passerby’s either ignore it altogether or grab it and speed away. One woman throws her foot on it to hide it from others before snatching it up and counting it gleefully—and still another group outright denies seeing it after they pick it up themselves.
When Pinon drops the money in front of a 9-year-old boy named Christopher, though, the boy and his dad are the first to hunt Pinon down and return it.
As a thanks, the show rewards Christopher with a new toy, letting him pick something out after he was honest enough to return the cash.
The boy’s reaction, though, is proof that his father truly has been raising him right.
“When you do something good, something good comes back to you,” he explains to Pinon, hitting home exactly why it’s better to do the right thing. Even if the reward isn’t immediate, things always seem to come back around!
