Would You Stop a Murder?

What would you do if you witnessed a murder in progress? Would you step in to help? Would you walk away?

The video above shows real reactions to people faced with that situation. The murder isn’t real, but it looks very real to those who stumble upon the stunt in a New York elevator performed by a couple of actors.

A movie network in the United States is using the apparently anonymous clip Elevator Murder Experiment as part of an advertising campaign.

Dead Man Down, a thriller starring Colin Farrell and Noomi Rapace, is due to be released in the United States this weekend.

The clip is the work of advertising firm Thinkmodo which produced a similar “teaser” clip for the release of The Last Exorcism last week. – News.com.au

So, would you step in? Even if it put you in some kind of danger?

I’m just hoping that some of those people who wandered off were going for help. I can’t imagine anyone just ignoring a life and death situation like that.
