TONIGHT ON ABC'S "WHAT WOULD YOU DO?"
When People See a Situation that Cries Out for Action,
Do They Step in, Back Away or Just Walk on by?
When you think no one is watching... what would you do? Using hidden cameras, "What Would You Do?" establishes everyday scenarios and then captures people's reactions. Whether people are compelled to act or mind their own business, John Qui�ones reports on their split-second and often surprising decision-making process. "What Would You Do?" airs FRIDAY, JULY 19 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.
Friday, July 19 scenarios Include:
· Open Car: A man walks down a sidewalk, checking the handle on every parked car in his path, until he gets to our staged unlocked car. He then leans in, rummages around, and starts to take items from the car. Will anyone confront him on his blatant attempt at theft? What will happen if the thief is African American or a woman?
· The Cool Dad: At a liquor store, a father is buying his teenage son alcohol for a party with his friends. Will anyone confront the dad or tell the store manager? (OAD: 10/5/12)
· Daughter Diet: Will anyone dining in a restaurant intervene when they witness a mother restricting what her young daughter can eat, saying that the daughter is getting too heavy and must slim down? (OAD: 10/19/12)
· Vintage Bottle: When a clumsy customer accidentally breaks a very rare, expensive bottle of wine and pretends she has nothing to do with it, even placing the blame on other customers, will anyone in the store speak up? What if the clumsy customer casts the blame on a store employee who does not speak English? (OAD: 10/12/12)
