YTV Network's Social Experiment Video Makes Smokers Question Health

This social experiment video from India's YTV Network causes smokers to question why they keep up with the nasty habit. In the video, a young boy approaches adults who are smoking and asks them for a cigarette. While some are quick to hand one over, others are more conflicted, especially when the boy starts asking questions.

The stunt video causes one guy to put out his cigarette in the midst of talking to the boy, and many others to make arguments to deter the kid from smoking, especially since many of the adults know that it is harmful for themselves, as well as those around them. The social experiment was devised in response to a new study that suggests that smoking in front of kids is not only harmful because of second hand smoke, but it also encourages them to pick up the habit.
