Disturbing “social experiment” video going viral, sparking debate

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. — Video of a “social experiment” is gaining national attention and sparking an intense debate.

The video shows a woman walking down the street in Myrtle Beach while wearing “stripper garb” and a reflective mask, and how people respond to the unusual sight.

The uploader wrote this in the video’s description:

“American Reflexxx is a short film documenting a social experiment that took place in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Director Alli Coates captured performance artist Signe Pierce as she strutted down a busy oceanside street in stripper garb and a reflective mask. The pair agreed not to communicate until the experiment was completed, but never anticipated the horror that would unfold in under an hour.

The result is a heart wrenching technicolor spectacle that raises questions about gender stereotypes, mob mentality, and violence in America.”
